Some of my favorite holiday memories as a kid is baking cookies. My mom and I would make a list in early December of all the cookies we were going to make, buy ingredients, and then on her day off we would bake for hours. We would end with – no joke – thousands of cookies. They would get separated, packed into tins, boxes, and bags, and dispersed among friends, family, teachers, hair dressers, the mail man – really anyone who we ever encountered that was kind.
It’s one of the memories that I want to share with my own kids. This Christmas will be the first that I feel pretty comfortable letting Ryan help me bake and ‘take on’ some tasks of his own rather than do the holiday baking while he sleeps.
With that in mind, I really wanted to find some cookie recipes to try that would be perfect for getting little hands involved. Obviously, you can always have your kiddo stir in some ingredients or count out items when measuring, but if you’ve ever encountered a stubborn 3 year old, you’ll know that just ‘helping’ never works out well. It always ends in, “I can do it myself!” and if the step they want to do isn’t SUPER kid friendly, it never works out well.
So I put together this list of cookie recipes that have very kid friendly steps – your kids are going to love knowing that they had a huge hand in creating holiday cookies for loved ones and you’ll be happy to create holiday memories without the power struggle!
Making festive treats for holidays doesn’t have to be difficult – these east turkey donuts are the perfect thanksgiving treat without the time and headache!
If you couldn’t tell by now, I really dig playing with my – okay, my kids – food. I think it goes back to my dad, who would tell us extremely intricate stories about our dinners. The mashed potatoes were mountains, gravy made rivers, and broccoli provided shade for all of the villagers.
These Halloween Mummy Snacks are perfect for a Halloween party or for eating before going trick or treating. Chicken nuggets or pizza rolls wrapped in dough with olive eyes are the perfect, simple Halloween dinner!
Ask any parent what two, sure fire foods are for kids under 10 and they’ll probably give you some form of “chicken nuggets and pizza.” Maybe throw in PB&J or hot dogs but let’s be real, kids love chicken nuggets and pizza.
Okay, okay, I’m 26 and I also love chicken nuggets and pizza. But I digress.
If you’ve been a follower for some time, you probably are aware how much I adore Halloween. I’ve always been the one to start planning for Halloween in July (okay, fine, I may or may not start planning even before that. So sue me.) which is kind of how these little mummy snacks came about.
I was perusing the Halloween side of Pinterest (AS ONE DOES IN JULY, DON’T JUDGE ME ;)) and I saw these super cute mummy dogs pop up again and again. Problem is, for the most part, my kids aren’t huge hot dog fans. Blame my husband who ‘makes’ them eat artisanal, gourmet sausages, but hot dogs aren’t big in our house.
