To help keep the spirit alive, I have decided that we should bake some sugar cookies and decorate them in halloween themed items. However, when I looked at my cookie cutters, all I have are Christmas ones. So Keith and I came up with the idea of taking the gingerbread man cutter and making zombies and monsters.
Now, anyone who knows me, knows I don't have a creative bone in my body (aside from the ability to play musical instruments), so I have a feeling this is going to turn into a batch of gingerbread men with splotches of icing and sprinkles on them - but at least he will have fun doing it. I will post photos once we are done...prepare to laugh!
Ah, that turned out to be great fun with Noah! What a great Saturday afternoon project for toddlers. I can't wait until Layla is old enough to participate!
Noah had so much fun decorating the cookies - then eating them immediately after! We ended up not doing zombies and monsters - due to my limited skills and cookie cutters. Instead, I would ask him what each teddy bear or gingerbread cutout was going to be for halloween. I was very impressed with his suggestions!
Here are the results (By the way, we both feel sick now from the amount of cookies and icing we have consumed!):
