Christmas Cookies + Little Bakers = Messy, Delicious, Holiday Fun!

One of the magical things about the holiday season has to be the cookies! The different types, festive flavors, …and more importantly, the sharing of them, makes them a necessity of the season!  In a way, that poses a dilemma for me, because on a scale of 1 to 10 my detailed crafty skills range at about a 2 (not to mention the nutritionist side of me tries to turn every Christmas cookie into an opportunity to get something healthier into the stomachs of my little ones – eeeek). I’m trying to work on this, because for my little 5 year old girl, detailed crafts & baking are her strength and her favorite thing!  So, my personal approach when it comes to doing Christmas cookies with my 5 year old and my 2 year old is three things: 

  1. Keep them festive but basic. 
  2. Make them one-step healthier. 
  3. Share, share, share! …and of course, make a memory leaving some out for Santa 😉
