LB is not quite at the gingerbread house point, but I thought we'd try to keep it simple and decorate some little trees instead!
Here's what we used:
Sugar ice cream cones (the real cone-shaped ones)
Frosting (vanilla or any white)
Decorations (we used marshmallows and little sprinkles shaped like Christmas lights)
I spread some of the white frosting on a plate and stuck a couple of cones open side down. I colored a little bit of the frosting green for the trees...

|Then she realized that you could taste the frosting too...yummmmmmm!|

|Once we were finished, it was also fun to stack and un-stack the cones!|
I wasn't so sure how Chloe would do with this. But, I've noticed that once you show her something, if she's interested, she'll do it too! This was a very cute activity, and I think we'll be ready to decorate some cutouts with Grandma and Grammy in Rochester!
