I saw this on Pinterest yesterday and thought it would be so much fun to make! The kids agreed to help and really, even with three kids swarming around it, Santa wasn't hard to make at all. The kids did most of the work and in fact we started it at 3:30 and were eating it for dinner. (Here's the recipe for the bread and here is the step by step picture instructions on how to put Santa together.)
I tried to teach Yip and Yap how to braid in hopes they would braid all of Santa's beard together. I was hoping to have a Captain Jack Sparrow look to the whole thing.
They all had to take turns "painting".
The boys were just sure that Yahoo wasn't doing it right and would mess it up.
Can't little sisters do anything right?
Hmmm, ours wasn't perfect but it was fun and tasted great!
The bread was super easy to make and it was kind of a sweet bread, fabulous when warm and smothered in butter. Isn't everything?
It was so easy and fun to make I'm trying to figure out how to change it up for other holidays. A big red bread heart, a giant painted Easter Egg, leprachaun's pot of gold....hmmm, I'm going to have to look into some of these ideas!
