Yesterday I did a little shopping in preparation for some Easter and school holiday craft (and perhaps some it can be used at gifts). I can home with quite a few things to keep the kids momentarily busy through the holidays. I ran into someone that was telling me she'd heard about people having Easter "trees" and was going togive it a go, so if I come across one I'll share it with you.
One of my purchases was a box of cookie making stuff. It came with cookie mix (like a box cake mix), icing mixture, egg shaped cookie cutter and a tube of coloured icing. I cooked them up yesterday afternoon before the kids got home from school and we iced them after Miss Pants finished her swimming lesson. They had 5 each to ice. I helped with the butter icing which was supposed to be used to sandwich the biscuits together, but this way they'll go further. The icing wasn't terribly thick but I put it in a freezer bag and snipped a corner off to squeeze it out anyway. The kids decided how they wanted me to put it on & they used the green that came with the kit & some glitter icing pens we already had to decorate them. I did a few too :)

The Finished Product
Because it was so close to dinner time (& because there was so much sugar involved) I only let them have one each before dinner. Mean Mother aren't I. Bwahahahaha...
Bye for now, K
