Sugar Cookies. Yum!
As part of my kids' new punishment/rewards program we are trying out, I decided to do a hands on art/craft on Fridays as a reward.
This week I decided to do something that we could do together and use as dessert. They wanted to do cookies, I needed to make it kind of special for them so I decided on cut out sugar cookies that they could decorate with icing.
I baked the cookies while they were playing outside this morning (while it was cool) and let them cool off. I tucked them away in a plastic zip top bag and waited for nap time.
We whipped up a batch of blue icing and started in. There was a lot of finger lickin' going on. That's why I don't let them help when I make baked goods for other people!
She tries really hard, and for being 3 I think she does a pretty good job.
Smear it on there!

If she loses anymore teeth, there won't be much cookie eating for her!
It was a good day, I highly recommend cooking with your kids. They gain self confidence by doing a job and it's fun.
And eating your work isn't half bad either ;)
