2017 Holiday Season Done!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful holiday!  I can’t believe it’s already the new year!  Time really flies!  This holiday season, as a class mom, I was responsible for helping with holiday party at the end of the year.  This meant mass cookie decorating.  I was stumped, I had never done this with more than three kids, tops!

Cue Pinterest.  I was constrained by a time limit of 20 minutes for eighteen kids, so I knew there would be no time to waste on passing out decorations or cookies and such.  I determined that I should pre-package a kit for each child that consisted of the following:

2 sugar cookies

(1) 2 oz. container of silver decorating balls

(1) 2 oz. container of mini holiday M&M’s

(1) 2 oz. container of holiday gummies

(2) mini candy canes

(1) small popsicle stick for spreading icing

I made sure each child had a plate to decorate the cookie on so the decorations wouldn’t get everywhere.   I also pre-prepared (3) bags of colored royal icing for each table of 4-5 kids so they all had a bag of red, green and white icing to share in disposable icing bags sealed with a rubber band at the end.  I cut off the tips at the event so the icing stayed fresh and made it 2 days in advance.

This went very smoothly.  Each child had a great time either decorating or eating the decorations.  The pre-packaged kits were very helpful for the event and made everything run so efficiently.  I think we pulled off a great activity at the party and got everyone in the holiday spirit!  How did you start and end your holiday season?
