Christmas Tree Project

Every morning when Maddie wakes up I love to hear what her first words of the day will be. She frantically slams her door open, runs to the balcony and yells something random and  adorable that always makes me smile. The other day she yelled, "Mom, I had a dream about Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!!!!!!!!!!" I must admit I am LOVING her enthusiasm for this holiday season so to further encourage her we did a super easy Christmas project.

A few weeks ago Shaun bought us a gingerbread house kit that makes four adorable little houses. We put them together immediately and they are decorations in Maddie's bedroom. But I figured the houses could use some trees.

All you need are some ice cream cones, sprinkles/candy, and some icing.

Maddie went straight to work....

Claudia pretty much just had a little icing/eating party of her own. (I am always struggling trying to find activities that a 3 year old and a 17 month old can enjoy together..if you have any ideas let me know.)

I think the trees turned out adorable but I need to bring them up to Maddie's room ASAP because a little elf in our kitchen seems to keep eating the candies off of them.

So if you have a 3 year old and need a quick/easy Christmas project I recommend this one! Or if you have a 17 month old and don't mind a sugary mess in your kitchen, that can be kind of fun too!!!
