Make Winter Candy Trees
What we used:
We had a waffle cone nightmare! When I opened the box all the cones were broken. Not one was intact. I was disheartened for a moment and then decided to do the best I could with what was left. I was able to use the lower half of the cone. It ended up working out for the better so the kids had a small treat to eat and not a large cone full of candy to consume.
How to make winter candy trees:
I sat all the items we needed out on a tray and the cones on paper plates.
I frosted the cones for the boys and then they added the candies. Of course they sampled them along the way.
I helped them with the sprinkles so that we did not have any accidents. These containers we have seem to have extra large holes in them.
I could not help but make one alongside the kids. I grew up making gingerbread houses with my mom. And decorating with candy is fun, even if you are a mom.
This was the perfect rainy day activity for us. We had most of the stuff on hand except for the cones I picked up that morning when I ran out for milk. Making Winter Candy Trees is an easy set up and clean up for mom. The kids love siting down to decorate with candy and they are a fun treat to eat. Since my kids enjoyed a lot of taste testing during the creation of them I chose to make them wait until after lunch the next day to eat them. I do not know about you, but candy usually gets my kids going. Moderation is key for us, lol. I could see this being fun to make and gift to others or for a playdate. Hope you and the kids can enjoy these too.
