Help your children be creative and imagine what the normal cookie cutouts could be. It is a good creative exercise and besides, it’s a great memory maker.
I recently saw a picture on facebook where someone had taken a gingerbread man cookie shape turned upside down and decorated as a reindeer. This reminded me of how my children decorate cookies.
Here are a few examples of what my crazy gang comes up with.
Poinsettia turned into a snowflake:
Ornament turned watch:
Candy in wrapper turned drummer:
If you look closely, you can see a mitten turned fish:
Here are some others:
I hope this inspires you to help your kids think outside of the box and be creative with Christmas cookies this year.
Until next time, God bless,
