I am not much of a baker, but I try here and there. One of my favorite things to do is bake with the kids….they love sweets naturally, so we are all happy.
This batch of cookies I used an old cookie recipe I had and let the kids add as many sprinkles and chocolate chips as they wanted (I found a similar one at allrecipe.com).
Harper was constantly putting cake batter on her brother, who just looked at it as “more for him”. Sprinkles were flying, icing covering there little faces, and I couldn’t help but toss some flour around with them. Even though I am late cleaning up the mess, it is always totally worth it.
Also… I LOVE creative food making with the kids. Growing up, it was always, “Don’t play with your food Mary.” Well kids… in this case… we will most definitely PLAY WITH OUR FOOD! 🙂 Here are some favorites (click on the picture to take you to the creator for more ideas).
Having these little moments with the kids is what keeps me going. I know one day they will want to do other things so as for now…. I am going to soak it up!
