Cookie Exchange…cheater! ME!

Each December our family has a cookie exchange.

You bring 1-2 dozen cookies.

You take home a variety of cookies…

as many cookies as you brought.

Here are some of the cookies made from years past:

And so…

those of you who know me…

I don’t bake

well, I have..

I just don’t ENJOY it!

* I made a batch of persimmon cookies last weekend.

I felt I had to before the perimmons rotted.

YUCK!

Bad BAKER!

I gave them to the chickens!

And so…  What to take to the family cookie exchange?

Make it…..don’t BAKE it!

TA DA!

Enter..

NUTTER  BUTTER  REINDEER!

Check out my COOKIE Pinterest board for MORE ideas!

And so…

Will it be a Pinterest SUCCESS?

or

A Pinterest FAIL?

Here we go!

Supplies.

Lay out the Nutter Butters.

Break the pretzels into antlers.

Mix powdered sugar into

ROYAL  FROSTING.

(It dries like CEMENT…it holds everything!)

I think ..

PINTEREST  SUCCESS!

The grandkids LOVE them!

So was I a COOKIE EXCHANGE cheater?

Maybe. But you know what?

The smiles & hugs made it ALL worth while!

Merry Christmas!

What? NO Halloween PARTY??!!

 WHAT???

NO  COSTUMES AT SCHOOL?

NO Candy….No  PARTY!

WHAT!??????

So  how to

“CELEBRATE”

without

“celebrating” ?

( think OUTSIDE of the box )..

We are having a “rotation” party!

The kids rotate to each of 3 classrooms.

The teacher prepares a “project” for 3 different classes.

One-time  prep.   Stay in MY classroom.

Kids get to do 3 different projects.

They move!

WIN!  WIN!!

So here are our 3 projects:

Room  4 :

SCIENCE!

Bat Hats!

We just add some  BAT FACTS 

to incorporate our 

informational writing!

Room 7:

Skeleton Bones!

Cute  craft!

Counting!

Room 3:

Candy  Necklaces!

WHAT? 

 ( Yes… We will have CANDY!)

Here  is  the  HOW  TO…

Need  :  Plastic Wrap

Yarn:   2  long pieces  and  4  small pieces  per  person

5  candies  per  person

Lay the plastic wrap horizontal.

Put candy  in a line…in the middle of the wrap.

Roll the  candies in the wrap “like a burrito”.

Tie the long yarn to the ends.

Use the small strings in between each candy.

I tie them in a knot, then a bow.

TA DA!

Wear   them home!

(Can’t  eat candy until they get home!)

and  so…..

We “really” aren’t  having  a 

HALLOWEEN  “PARTY”…

Just a little

“FUN” in room 3!

and  a little candy to take home!

So we wish YOU a safe and happy

HALLOWEEN!
