A pan of brownies gets extra holiday cheer when cut into triangles and decorated as Christmas trees. Candy canes make for festive tree stumps, while kids can have fun decorating the brownies with frosting garland and candy ornaments. The brownies are the
thumb prints made into Christmas lights. Easy craft to do with the kids. To enhance this, I might extend the strand each year, so by the time they are older, you have a long string of thumb print lights.
We cut the log (landscape timber? )into 3 parts, used socks from the dollar store for the hats, cut the nose chips out of wood and material of choice for scarves. Buttons hot glued down the front and paint for eyes and cheeks.
