Here is how it started. A couple weeks ago, we were asked by Delaney's teacher to sign up to bring a snack for The Christmas program (that post will follow this one). I had the sheet in my had ready to write my name down beside the candy canes. This was easy...I could just pick up a box and turn them into reindeer using little piping and red dots, right? Wrong. Just before I wrote my name another mom yells "I'll bring the candy canes"! AH! Your kidding me, right? Should I be hateful and put my name there anyway? Should I just suck it up and sign up for something else and let her have the stinkin' candy canes? Being the competitive on that I am, I just thought, 'forget it, I will come up with something all the kids will like more than candy canes!'
When Debi posted this, I knew exactly what I was going to do for Delaney's school! Delaney and Jess both loved making these cute little guys. So much that we made 50+!
I must say, they were a HUGE hit at school! Not just for the kids, but the parents and teachers as well!
