Ingredients:

  • Sugar cones
  • Green frosting (Or white frosting with green food coloring added in)
  • Various sprinkles for decorating such as: Red Hots, mini-m&ms;, sprinkles, edible glitter etc.
  • Butter knife to spread frosting
  • Plastic tray or cookie sheet to work on. (I love these trays from Lakeshorewe use them for everything including beads, moon-sand, play-doh, glitter projects, anything that can be potentially disastrous to my kitchen.)

    We made these at our 4 H meeting and the kids loved it! We also used red licorice for garland.

    What an awesome idea! These would be a perfect activity for our home learners group Christmas party and book exchange. I also like the idea of using licorice for garland from The Happy Homeschool Mom. Thanks for sharing.

    Cute idea!!! We’re going to do this too! We have kids fish oil gummy vitamins that are yellow or red glittery stars (plus glittery fish), so we will put one on top of our trees!
