Cookies Anyone?

Wallace was sent off to mow a trail, and my job was to make 35 tree cookies for an event that was held yesterday.

After finding the right tree to cut down (choke cherry), I had to ask Colleen to cut it down...I am not certified to use a chain saw.

Next, using the drill press to make the holes for the leather straps in order to hang them around their necks.

Wallace finished up just in time to snap these shots before I was finished with them.

This is just part of the mess I made, but it was fun doing this little chore even though it was a little messy!!!

I think Colleen thought I could not handle this job, but it got done.

You can see the tree cookie hanging from this little girls neck. They were given the freedom of decorating it themselves.

They even got an added bonus of lichen on the bark.

The classroom was filled with children and they all enjoyed their tree cookies.

Cookies anyone??????

Until next time...

  1. Did you seal the wood so the sap wouldn't get all over everything?
    It's hard to tell from the picture, did they paint them? Looks like a fun activity.
