I have a two and a half year old daughter, and this holiday season is really the first that she is old enough to participate in – and boy oh boy, have we had some fun!

This week, I was at Sam’s Club picking up supplies for a holiday party I am throwing when I came across an aisle of activities that I knew my daughter would love  – including a rice krispies treats trainset and a gingerbread man decorating set. I snapped up the latter and was on my way!

When I got home, I set up all the components on our coffee table so everything would be at her level.

While she wasn’t able to handle the frosting on her own, we applied the face together!

Next up!  Mr. Gingerbread Man’s coat!

And ta-da!  A completed holiday cookie!

And I even got a bite!
