Today Miss M and a friend baked and decorated Christmas cookies! It's actually the first time I've baked something with Miss M! She looked very cute in her little apron, and did quite well following instructions such as 'stir' and 'pour.'
We made gingerbread cookies and a shortbread-type cookie. We rolled them out and used a variety of cutters to cut out our shapes. After baking in the oven, the kids were very keen to decorate using red and green icing, smarties, m&m's, eyes and sprinkles. After decorating about 3 cookies, Miss M thought it was much more fun to eat the lollies instead! I think I had just as much fun creating my own decorated cookies (check out the photo at the end!) It was a really fun and very cute activity to do with the kids for Christmas.
