My daughter loves to get in the kitchen to make something. She loved the Christmas tree cupcakes I had made but she wanted something that she could do since she is only 3 years old. I grab some extra sugar cones I had laying around and let her go to town with the leftover frosting I had. This ended up being a huge hit when I took my kids to grandmas house, all the kids loved doing this from one years old to 6 years old. It was fun to see how different the trees looked with each kid.
Since this is just going to be for kids you can make it with a can of vanilla frosting colored green with a little food coloring. I was able to find the star sprinkles at michaels craft store, they are made by wilton.

Place an ice cream cone on a plate so it’s standing up. Place the frosting, M&M’s, and stars in their own separate small bowls. Let your child cover the cone with the frosting using a small offset spatula or spoon. Let them place the M&M’s on the tree like lights and top it with a star on top of their tree.
