Make Christmas tree ornaments out of gingerbread cookies – so fun to make with the kids!
This weekend we bought our Christmas tree and I thought now that Madison is getting a little older (she's 5) it would be fun to spend Sunday making homemade ornaments. We blasted Christmas music in the background, had lots of fun and the whole house smelled like gingerbread.
This is such a fun project to make with the family, all you need is some cookie cutters (I chose stars, Madison used all different shapes), some twine and I used the tip of the piping bag to cut the holes in the dough. My older daughter Karina even wanted to help so it became a family affair, with lots of laughs, and a great way to get everyone off their iPads and computers. My girlfriend is a Girl Scout leader and plans on doing this with her girls.
I used my basic gingerbread cookie recipe which you can find here, which made about 60 stars. The amount will vary depending on the size of your cookie cutters.
Madison hugged me so hard when we were all done and said it was the Best. Day. Ever! A Sunday well spent, making memories that will last forever. Here's the basic steps, have fun!
