There was holiday music.
There were children busy exploring their winter-y creativity.
There were lots of colors.
But, we weren't decorating cookies. Nope. We were making little Shrinky Dink ornaments. (Remember Shrinky Dinks from your childhood?)
Obviously, in our Welcoming Kitchen we're all about food. But, sometimes a great way to include everyone in an activity is just to move away from food. Our kids had a blast, and they were busy for well over an hour (giving me more time to clean up and get some holiday stuff done).
Tomorrow, maybe we'll make custom gift wrap out of recycled paper!
