Cookies for Santa

My 2 1/2 year-old helped make cookies for our First Annual Breakfast with Santa party we had over the weekend. I guess it was a dry run for cookie-making for the big guy next weekend. She was a HUGE help and we had so much fun! I am usually big on making things from scratch, but to be honest, I really didn’t know what to expect. So I bought a 3 pack of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix from BJs. They were delicious…then I frosted them with frosting and decorated. It was such a fun time with my little one and I look forward to doing this more often with her (and #2 as she gets older). I premeasured all the ingredients and allowed my little one to pour them all into the bowl and help mix.

Mommy rolled out the dough

My little one picked the cookie cutters and helped to cut out the fun shapes

Trees, snowflakes, mittens, stars....

Bake for 8-10 minutes

My daughter loved decorating the cookies with sprinkles. I displayed on a tray covered with coconut (snow) and ice cream cones covered in frosting and green sprinkles!
