On one of the cold rainy days last week we decided to break out the cookie cutters and let the girls make sugar cookies! This was their first experience with sugar cookies, and they did GREAT! Daddy helped so mommy could document our first cookie making experience, and the girls had so much fun!
How it started...
Brianna and Daddy cutting out cookies =)
Brianna very excited about cutting out her very first cookie with a cookie cutter!
Olivia and Daddy cutting out cookies =)
The girls both cutting out cookies with cookie cutters at the same time...Daddy's crazy talented!
Si's favorite picture of the day - Livvy giving Daddy knuckles after a job well done and Bri smiling happily for the camera! Super cute!
Brianna eagerly anticipating the minute she gets to eat one of these delectible sugar cookies!
This was a very fun activity! I have to say though, it was relatively messy with all the flour, and it took the entire evening! What a fun evening we had as a family though - I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Making the cookie dough, cutting out the cookies, and baking the cookies took nearly two hours on it's own, then the cookies had to cool enough to be frosted and sprinkled. The girls were entertained through the whole process though, and they loved being able to use the cookie cutters, essentially on their own. It makes me think that maybe they will be ready to use cookie cutters and play with play-doh sometime soon! They are growing up =). It's so fun to be sharing in all of these first new experiences with them!
Have you made cookies with your kiddos yet? If so, how'd it go? If not, what's holding you back? I would definitely encourage you to give it a try if you haven't already!
Until next time -
