holiday diy: with kids

holiday sugar cookies
just a quick post seeing as it's nearing 1 am and i have really got to start getting to bed earlier this week! oh wait, what week? it's already friday. sheesh. time flies when your sick, huh? the last couple of days at work have been full of holiday fun with me and C. we stocked up on finger paints + glitter, cardstock, foam sheets, and stamps. together we've created holiday cards for this wee one to give the people that love her. what better way to warm the heart of a far-away relative? today we made scrumptious sugar cookies from a packet. these are super quick to bake and perfect for little hands. at two these things are new to her- she loved squishing her hands in the dough (and cleaning often), rolling it out, and pushing down the cookie cutters. After they cooled and were frosted (by moi) she loved adding sprinkles and candies.
