Let your child (or children) invite a few friends over to decorate cookies. This is a great party for grandmas to have, and invite the grandchildren. Have the cookie dough pre-made and chilling in the refrigerator.
You can make several different kinds of cookies, but the cutout cookies will be the most popular. Lay out an assortment of cookie cutters. Let each child cut out a few cookies with the cookie cutter of their choice. Bake the cookies and let them cool.
Set up a cookie bar with different colors of icing, sprinkles, candies, and whatever else you can think of. Let the children each decorate their own cookies. Let them eat a couple, then take the rest home, or keep some for holiday gatherings.
It’s a great project for a cold, or rainy fall day. What can brighten your day more than baking cookies? For more information on making holiday cookies check out The Best Cookies Ever.
