Yesterday was my annual Girl Scout Holiday Party! I had 13 excited eight year old girls at my house to make sugar cookies, necklaces and ornaments. My house may never be the same again..lol! We had a great time!
We started by making the cookies. I spread my entire counter with powdered sugar
and then let the girls roll out the dough!
Then they cut out the shapes and baked. While the cookies baked, I let the girls each make an icing color of their choice to decorate with. Yes, I DID give them food coloring! These are how the cookies came out iced!
Didn't them make great colors?
Next we made some washer necklaces with a little holiday flair.. jingle bells!
And of course, every holiday party needs a new decoration for the the tree!
The last thing we did was a holiday gift exchange. I had all of my girls bring a $10 gift wrapped in a shoe box. We played musical present with 1 present at a time. The winner got a present and added her gift into the mix. It was great! All the girls loved their gifts! And of course I had to give my girlies something for Christmas so here is what they got!
Can YOU guess what it is?
