|the finished product|
The girls had never made cookies before. I had four girls ranging in age from 10 to 19. They didn't get the idea of using different colors on a cookie, but they had fun just the same.
Once we mixed up the dough, it had to cool in the refrigerator for a time. So, that is when I brought out some crafty items for making the simple Nativity I blogged about on 11/27. We had to let the glue dry on the faces, so they had to come back the next day to get the completed project. When we first put them together the card stock paper didn't do as well as I would have liked. Mary and Joseph were slanted. I had to work with them and re-staple a few times to get them to sit straight. But overall, I think it worked. The first picture you see is them slanted. The second is the completed project.
