Clearance Cookie Fun

What Mom doesn't love a good bargain? Especially all those 75% off 'after-the-holiday' clearance sales! Granted these cookies were a tad crunchy... the kids didn't care. The fun was decorating the cookies. Then picking the decorations off and eating them. No one even wanted to eat the cookie.
1 gingerbread cookie kit=$3.00
Spending almost a whole hour decorating them=priceless

Dear Ginger,
What fun! I saw kits like that before Christmas and thought of making some at home... but it didn't happen. We had fun with our "you've got mail" cupcakes though and I guess that will have to be enough.

I have not thought about doing them after the holidays - that makes so much sense. And with all the snow days we have had, it would have been nice to have something in the house to fill the time.
