Too Much Help!

Ever tried to do some Christmas baking with a little TOO much help? Me, too! Here’s a simple solution for children who can still be distracted. Put your little helper to work making these pretend play gingerbread cookies!

Gather a few materials:
Cookies 2Cookies 8Cookies 5Cookies 3

First we put the cookie “dough” on a tray to bake. (The cookies are actually felt stickers and I just left the paper on the back. They are already nice and stiff.)
Cookies 7
Then we decorated the cookies by trading the plain cookies for the ones with clothing decorations and put them on a festive serving tray.
Cookies 9
 Serve those cookies on a little plate and eat them up!Cookies 4

This is a great way to include and enjoy your children
even when you can’t really include them in the activity you are doing.

It’s a busy time and while I love it, there’s stuff that has to get done!

Here's to checking things off my list and having fun!

That is a great idea! I used to just give my kids a bit of dough & let them have at it. They always ended up covered in flour!

I think my girls would love this too but they would really, really want to put stickers all over themselves! This is so cute...I still may have to still try it.
