Creative Play Challenge Day 5: Bake Something (Real OR Pretend)!
November 30, 2012 at 9:37 AM

Kids LOVE baking and devouring their concoctions! Today, pick something to bake with your child (and don't be afraid to make a little bit of a mess!) If your child is too young to assist in the kitchen, play with pretend cupcakes or cookies, or decorate paper "cookies" with crayons and stickers.

     last weekend we made flour and salt dough and did hand impressions that we baked and will be painting them this weekend. The kids loved this activity.

    DD is sick, but when she gets better will love to do this.  She loves to "help" me cook/bake.

    We made white chocolate macadamian nut cookies recently.  They were so tasty, they certainly did not last.  Next up is sugar cookies with snowflake sprinkles!

    I cut out different shape pieces of cardboard and we used white glue as frosting and real sprinkles.
