I had my little brother staying for the weekend, so we had to swap out the fingerpaints and playdough for a little more mature fun (though he was tres pleased with his own playdough monsters, he's just too cool to admit it).
We did lots of baking, some Black Velvet Cupcakes I'll share tomorrow, and these 'Ginger-Dead Men'. Let me tell you, entertaining an 8 year old is a helluva lot different to toddlers, but you through anything gory or gross into the mix and they are hooked.
We made up a batch of ginger-sugar cookie dough, rolled out lots of little men and once they were baked we bit off their heads! Ace fun...
Looks at his sad little face!
These are little Chris' attempts... I love the cheecky little bat face
This, apparently, is a ninja. He has been chopped in half by a Samurai sword... see what I mean about the gory and gross?
As usual little Vin got into the action too
