I love getting kids involved in the kitchen and it's great to get their "help" while making cookies. But honestly, the messy flour and over pouring of ingredients makes me think to myself... "just let me do it!"
So here is a good trick where the kids feel involved and part of the process when cooking. Let them decorate! I'm not talking about all the colored frostings or sprinkles, still too messy. The best way to let them decorated is by using food coloring gels to "paint" the cookies.
How cute are these! I love the creative touch that looks the kiddos get to apply to their cookie art. And the best part, the cookies still taste great, not all full of globby frosting that's been drying on their fingers. This gel paste we also used for our Valentines Day cookies and here is the link to get our simple Sugar Cookie Recipe
So enjoy the patter of little feet and excitement as the Easter Bunny comes to your home. It's my favorite holiday (mom's lemon meringue pie, yummy).
