I have a weakness for Christmas items on clearance, so the adrenaline rush hit when I discovered a mid-January 90% price reduction sale recently. Whoa… a gingerbread tree kit for less than $2. This would be fun to do with my two-year old granddaughter! Oh, no…Christmas is 11 months away.
So what. She is two and we can call it a winter tree.
Considering that a two-year old tends to have the attention span of a gnat, I’d say lasting one full hour on a project is impressive. On top of that, it held MY full attention for an hour. I did rush the decorative frosting part and pretty much globbed it on. Martha Stewart would have rolled her eyes and tisked.
Even though the results weren’t as perfect as pictured on the box, it looked just fine to me. In this case, I declared the process more important than the results. I doubt that I will be asked to be a contestant on any of the cake decorating reality shows, anyway. That’s O.K., I have enough to do already!
