The temperature hovered around sixty degrees today, so I sent the children outside to play this afternoon. They got delightfully muddy and messy, but they decided to come back inside at just the wrong second. I was in the middle of arranging some dogwood and evergreen branches, and my materials were spread in all the places the kids wanted to play. What to do, what to do.......
How about get them busy making the first Christmas treats of the season!
I finished up my project while they happily unwrapped Hershey's Kisses and spread them on cookie sheets, inside of pretzel circles.
Add some red and green candy and you have a tasty treat called "Reindeer Noses."

It worked like a charm. It took them just long enough to set up the treats for me to finish up my project. Then we taste-tested a few samples and packaged up the rest for future eat.
