Ellie got an Easy Bake Oven from Aunt Rhonda for Christmas and she was very excited! The morning after Christmas she woke up and pointed to the box and said "I can't believe I am the owner of my own oven!" Anyway, she wanted to have a party for her new doll (I am convinced she is going to be a party planner when she grows up) so of course she wanted to make something with her oven. We made sugar cookies and she frosted them, added sprinkles and cut up straws to use for candles. She was able to most of it herself. Afterward I ran her some dish water and had her wash all of the easy bake dishes and spoons. What great practical life skills!!
