Gingerbread trees!

I saw a cute pin a while ago and thought it would be a perfect activity for us with our toddler friends. Jump forward to yesterday and the whole thing came together. It's very simple. You just need sugar ice cream cones, frosting, and some fun ornament candies. Most of the supplies can be found at the dollar store. We simply added green food coloring to make the frosting green. For ornaments we used sixlets, which are processed in a peanut free facility unlike m-and-m's.

Nolan had such a blast decorating his tree. I put the frosting on his cone and handed him his ornaments then went back to handing out supplies to our momma friends. He sat like a big boy decorating for a long time. Eventually he got a little frosting on his finger and gestured for a napkin. I told him to lick it and once he did he realized it was edible. Then the fun began! In the end he ate his entire cone!

Look at that grumpy face!!

First taste!

Haha note all the frosting has now been licked off.
