My youngest daughter’s Girl Scout Troop is earning a try-it badge. So, I volunteered to go in and make a few holiday snacks with them. Trying to keep it simple for me, and for the girls, I decided to make a Christmas tree made out of vegetables. I bought green peppers, celery, and broccoli, and ended up ditching all but the broccoli. I think it works.

The idea here is to let the kids design their own trees. Cut the star out in advance, but then just let them have at it! I passed out little bowls of ingredients to each little girl, and I gave them a plate as their canvas. You’d be surprised at how much fun the kids will have. It’s an edible craft.
