Over the summer, my 6 year old granddaughter and I got some sewing in. I helped her make an elastic-waist skirt out of seersucker that I have had laying around for a long time. I told her we ought to enter it in the Fair. Then I remembered that my sister would let her grandson help her bake and they would save several cookies in the freezer, to enter in the fair. My granddaughter wanted to make cookies with lots of colored sugar - she KNOWS Grammy has them in the cupboard. I found a recipe for a rolled sugar cookie and she really did dump the ingredients in the bowl and send the flour flying! And then to roll out the dough - she more or less pushed it into cutting shape with the rolling pin. She decorated them with orange and green sugars.
Well, her cookies and skirt earned her second place in the junior division. She was so excited! I don't remember where my items placed and I didn't take pictures of them. I'll find out when I pick them up. I was just so happy for my granddaughter. She has plans for next year's fair - she wants to make matching dresses, for her Mommy, Grammy, herself and her GRANDPA!! There's a winner for you!!
