I so didn't want to buy the expensive decorating bags and tips. Simply the best way to get nice lines when icing cookies. A simple syringe will suck up the frosting and dispense it evenly. Why didn't I think of this? And easy for kids to use.
I LOVE THIS IDEA! Book Advent Calendar -- Wrap 24 Christmas books you already own. Kids get to pick which one is read that day. Stack under kids tree in bedroom. Half the fun of presents is unwrapping them. What a fun tradition!
