Kids love coming to your house because there’s always a fun project to do — which is exactly the point. Entertaining the little ones means the grown-ups can retain their sanity at your well-planned holiday party.
This year, Gumdrop Cookie Shop’s Van Gogh gumdrops will keep them occupied at least through cocktails. The custom cookie kit includes a dozen blank sugar cookies for kids to decorate with 10 edible-ink markers. After they’ve drawn a masterpiece snowman or angel, wrap up the cookies as to-go favors with the included cellophane bags and raffia.
That is, if the sweet treats haven’t already been devoured.
