I think baking is one of the best activities to do with a child, so I bake often with my children and their friends. Not only does it create wonderful memories, it’s also a great learning experience since it incorporates math, science, and art. If you are in need of some ideas, here are 5 fun cookies to make with kids.
1. Twix Thumbprint Cookie courtesy of Cooking Classy
My earliest memories of baking are those of making thumbprint cookies with my mom. This is a nice twist to the classic cookie.
2. Spin Art Cookie courtesy of A Kailo Chic Life
Spin Arts is one of my all time favorite crafts. I absolutely love how this super fun technique is incorporated into baking!
Children would have a blast with these cookies. They can get creative and draw their own chalk art on them making each cookie unique and personal.
Sprinkles never get old with my children, they want to put them on everything from cupcakes to waffles. These colorful cookies are simple to make and will certainly be a hit amongst the crowd.

Stained glass cookies are gorgeous to look at and the design possibilities are endless. These strawberry stained glass cookies are a unique use of the stained glass technique and look so scrumptious!
