A few mornings ago, J asked me to make letters with food. I knew right away what we needed to make.
I went immediately to one of my favorite websites, Weelicious, and used her sugar cookie recipe. I liked that it only made one small batch, and we didn’t end up with dozens of cookies left over. This recipe made the perfect amount for us.
We made our dough…
….rolled it out….
…cut out our letters with cookie cutters….
….and laid them out on a parchment lined cookie sheet. We had some extra dough, so J chose to make a few trains and an airplane too.
After a few minutes in the oven, we had a lovely snack and practiced our letters too!
J loved his cookies…what little kid wouldn’t love a sugar cookie?
This is one of those great activities that is great for creativity and fine motor skills. Plus, kids get to practice math skills like counting and measuring. And then you have the obvious lesson of practicing letters. Such a good, well-rounded activity!
