It is time for the High School years and we will focus on that. Including my daughter's plans and interests as they prepare to leave the nest. In the past we have used Waldorf, Montessori, Lapbooking and TWTM in our homeschool and I will leave the working links up.
Every year, the Saturday before Christmas, I bake a bunch of sugar cookies:
Then I make icing. I melt 1/3 cup butter, add 2 cups powdered sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla & mix it all up. Then I add 2 Tablespoons hot water and stir until creamy and smooth. Then I divide it into bowls and add color:
We also have an assortment of sprinkles, colored sugar and tube icing to decorate them with:
Every one pitches in and decorates cookies while I keep a steady flow of icing going. When they are done they are so pretty.
We also have nice floor cleaning crew who loves sugar and cookies:
