She started by sinking her fingers in the dough.
Then started making hand prints
Then we rolled then up into two long “Snakes”
Then we made our candy canes!
She had fun taking it apart again!
She did try to take a few tastes but I just reminded her it was not eat but that she could smell it instead. She liked that!
