I am going to do the Christmas trees tomorrow with our pre-schoolers, but omit the toxic dyes and use spinach juice to color the frosting, and probably cranberries dipped in sugar for the ornaments. Also thinking I’ll do card stock paper star ornaments with the baby Jesus on them – I love the little bit of straw on there, and the kids will too. Maybe use ribbon for a hanger? Thanks for posting.
That’s great, Ruth! Have fun! 🙂
