Advent Activity # 3: Christmas Mice and Gingerbread Cookies
I found this cute little felt mouse craft that was very easy here. The kids couldn't really do this one because they are still a little young, but they ate candy canes and enjoyed watching me assemble them.
Next, we used a Gingerbread mix and made both Gingerbread men to decorate and ginger snaps. At first it seemed like the dough was a little sticky and hard to work with. I even thought they would not turn out at all. However, after baking them they really came out nicely. Also I bought several of the icing tubes you see for different projects. It is easy to work with (even for the kids) and sets up very quickly.
