Thursday Fun

I have the privilege of picking up my niece, the drama princess, on Thursdays after school. Most Thursdays I try to have something fun to do. We've made cupcakes and muffins and brownies and done various crafts, but I've decided to switch to cookies at least until Christmas. Today, we made snowman cookies.

My niece isn't encouraged to do a lot of free form creative things often and was trying to impose rules on the nerlet's cookie making. I explained that they both could make cookies however they wanted with the number of eyes or mouth pieces that they wanted to without anyone telling them how it should be done and after the drama princess thought about it, she decided to go wild. Here are the final cookies.

I think they did a great job, don't you. These were actually the last ones done by my niece and I'm so proud of her for going outside of her comfort zone.
