I am part of an AWESOME mommy panel organized by Two in Diapers and Naptime Review. Each Saturday, we will bring you fresh new ideas and advice about motherhood.
Getting your preschooler dressed: Drawing the battle lines
Here is what Mom Connection shared:
Hi! I’m Cassie from Two In Diapers, and I’m a mommy to three sweet babies, ages 4, 3, and 18 months. This is a fun holiday project I do with my kids:
Well, we have two actually! While I’m not the craftiest momma around, I definitely love to bake and have a killer sweet tooth. Not surprisingly, my kiddos and I like to get into the holiday spirit by doing activities related to sweets.
We definitely always decorate a gingerbread house. I use the word “decorate” because until this point we have always bought the prebaked ones that you “glue” together with frosting and decorate. You can view our latest here. When I was a kid, my mom used to bake these elaborate gingerbread villages from scratch. I would love to do that someday, but for now my kids are little and these things don’t last long around here! We do have SO much fun putting them together and decorating them! Our only complaint is that there always seems to be a large shortage of frosting…
Our other holiday tradition is baking and decorating sugar cookie cutouts to give out as holiday treats to our friends! We actually do put quite a bit of effort into decorating them beautifully, and they are SO tasty! I’ll be posting photos and a recipe after we create this year’s batch this weekend! The kids really enjoy handing them out to their friends and teachers at school as well. The fun time spent in the kitchen baking and grooving to holiday tunes is priceless, and the end result is pretty special too.
This is a fun h
Love to hear from you!
