Making Edible “Baking” Dough For Kids
This really isnt anything that grandmas havent been doing for youngsters for generations, but I wanted to share because its so rewarding and fun for kids. If theyve ever watched you make cookies, bread, or anything else that requires rolling out or kneading dough, you know theyre just longing to get their hands (and mouths) on it. Normally I let Emma have a bit of dough while Im baking, but yesterday I wasnt in a baking mood and Emma was restless and wanting me to make cookies. So heres what I did:
We didnt measure anything, I just added enough flour and milk to make a dough with a pinch of powdered sugar and let Emma do it all (which she was thrilled with).
We pulled out our fun cookie cutters and rolling pin and off she went!
Next time were going to add food coloring and sprinkles. 🙂
Have you ever made dough just for your kids to play with?
