Rooney’s Christmas list

I keep notes throughout the year of things Rooney asks for or that I think she would enjoy, so her list was pretty easy to put together this year. I'm most excited about the gummy candy maker and the Easy Bake Oven — experiments we can do together! I don't remember asking for an Easy Bake Oven as a kid, but I loved playing with my cousin's. I wonder if that chocolate cake will still taste as good as I remember :-)

She was interested in a Hatchimal for about two days, but then she got distracted by the spin art center and ended up asking Santa for that. But I am curious to hear if your kid got a Hatchimal last year and still love it? Are they worth $60?!

Her stocking stuffers will be glow sticks, water balloons, a new toothbrush, gum, candy, washi tape and a ticket to the Daddy Daughter Dance in February.

If you're also shopping for a 5½-year-old, here are some ideas! I'd love to hear what your kids are asking for, too!
