M&M Christmas Trees


With the late nights we've had the past couple of nights due to Nutcracker rehearsal, I decided to have a simple school day today. We watched a WWII documentary, and then did some Christmas activities.

The small people had a great time making M&M Christmas trees. They were messy, fun, and super simple. All we needed was sugar ice cream cones (the ones with the pointed ends), frosting, and Christmas colored M&Ms.







The finished products:
 




Of course I can never resist taking fun pics during the process. The Boy was trying to pretend to be upset with me for taking his picture. Right after I snapped it, he started laughing.

  1. These trees are very cute. Do you think they ate more candy than they used on the trees? Please consider adding this to Look What We Did.

    1. I'm sure they ate PLENTY of the candy, and then they ate the trees. They were hyped up on sugar. :)

  2. What a Neat idea! I think I will let my kids make these too. I am planning on doing a Christmas inspired mini unit study over the next week. I already have some books I have checked out at the library and I created my own Christmas word list on Spelling city, and some Math sheets I made myself; the only thing missing would be a yummy craft, which now I have ;)

    Happy Holidays,
    Keri
