I try to include a kitchen activity at least once each month and what better better thing to make this month than Christmas cookies. We made sugar cookies, rolled them out and cut out shapes.
Baby Joey helped with moral support! He was so busy "talking" that he kicked off his sock! Making the cookies was a good time but the real fun came when we iced them!
That is Jake "sampling" the icing. He didn't bother licking the spatula he just stuck his hand right in! I, of course, told him not to do that but it did not stop it from sneaking a bite or two! :)
Jake had a great time decorating. He was so focused on decorating that he barely said a word. I suggested that he use sprinkles and cinnamon circles. He got a little carried away as you can see below!
I asked him who would eat that cookie? He looked at me and very matter of fact and said, "Jake will!" I guess he was making the perfect cookie for himself! ;) I love how he talks in the third person too!
Look at that mess! But boy did we have fun! Get in the kitchen and have some fun with a toddler!
