tips for baking cookies with children

  • make the dough in good time beforehand 
  • schedule the baking when the baby naps

  • dress the children in cute costumes - so it gets even more fun!

  • let them go into action while you pray for strengh and patience

  • enjoy looking at these small hands working together

  • risk that your kitchen looks like this after the children are done

  • when the baby is up, dress him up, too
  • let him have as many cookies as it takes you to clean up the kitchen

  • after the kitchen is cleaned up enjoy a cup of coffee with your husband - if he happens to be around

  • hope the cookies will last for at least three days

My Mom always used to let my daughter wear her red high heels to bake while helping her cook!
