Are you looking for something interesting to do with the kids this day? Bake a batch of hot, gooey cookies.
Use this time to talk and reconnect with your children. Stirring a batch of chocolate chip dough is a excellent time to talk about what’s happening at school, how their friends are doing . You will be surprised just how much you can learn about your kids life in this relaxed, laid back atmosphere, which brings up a great point…
Keep it fun and relaxed. So what if there’s flour all over the counter and floor. It will not take you more than a couple of minutes to sweep up the mess after you are done baking. Have fun together and don’t be worried about Pest Removal. In fact, a little flour fight could be in order.
Give your kid a job or two in making the biscuits. This could be measuring ingredients, helping you count how many eggs you’ve added to the batter, and of course plenty of stirring help. Use an extra large bowl when you’re baking with younger children. This will let them stir the batter without half of the dough slinging out.
You can get an assortment of all types of cookie cutter shapes at your local discount or craft shop. Have them pick a few of their favorite shapes, then put them to work cutting out biscuits from dough you rolled out.
Of course these cookies will require decorating. Give your child a pastry brush to brush this glue on the baked and cooled cookies, then have them decorate with sprinkles or small candies.
Last but by no means least, pour all you a tall glass of milk and enjoy your freshly baked cookies together.
