Oh Christmas Tree!

I'm so sorry Janna, but we decided to copy your idea of a gingerbread tree. I did put a new spin on it, though. The kids and I made green sugar cookies today that we turned into our very own cookie tower... er... I mean Christmas tree. This was so fun that I think it might be a new family tradition. Very easy AND kid-friendly!

A little sugared up

"Hey look - I've got sprinkles!

The finished product - unfortunately the sprinkles didn't really stick, but I don't think anyone minded.

I felt bad posting without a picture of Andrew, so here's one from a warm day last month. He was watching the whole production with the tree, but wouldn't look at the camera.

What a fun and tradition! The tree is very cute I love the idea!

What a cute idea! I am going to copy it. In Grenada we don't have a christmas tree and I think the kids would love to make a cookie tree.
P.S. I can't get over how cute your family is!

Amber said...

ooooh! I like the tree idea, we might have to copy that!

Your tree turned out cute!

Janna said...

Cute idea!!! I'm glad you ended up making your own... now you can actually eat it! We tried to eat part of our tree yesterday and the cookies were rock hard (they came out of the box that way)!

Did you use squares? I thought about trying to make my own, but don't have enough star cookie cutters in different sizes to do it. The squares are a perfect solution to that.
