Today I want to share a holiday idea that could either be used as
1) a gift basket for friends
2) an after school Christmas activity to do with your kids
Dough Ornament Sugar Cookie Kits.
Oh and YES! These ornaments really are cookie DOUGH.
Sugar cookies are a classic part of the Christmas season: covering hands and counters with flour, rolling out the sugared dough, cutting your favorite holiday shapes, filling the house with the smells of baked goodness, decorating rows of cookies, and leaving behind a messy kitchen counter full of color that looks like modern art.
I wanted to create a unique way to present slice and bake cookies that would excite kids and look adorable. These KITS have everything needed to have a sugar cookie baking day!
– cookie cutters
First I used a clear tube to layer in all the fun toppings: mini chocolate chips to be pressed onto white frosting for snowman eyes, red hots to be perfectly placed as Rudolph’s nose, colored sprinkles for holiday celebrating, and gumdrops in every color for sugared houses.
And then TA DA! You’ve just made a sugar cookie dough ornament in a handful of simple steps.
Our boys had a lot of fun discovering their Sugar Cookie Kit in our home sweet home! I turned on the Christmas lights, lit a mistletoe candle, and we started baking.
