Make cookie dough using flour, sugar, etc…Have your child learn about measurements by using ½ cup, 1 cup, 1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, etc… in the kitchen. Roll out the dough into a large “pizza”. Once the dough is cooked and cooled, spread peanut butter or cookie butter on top of the cookie.

Healthy Eating

June 8th, 2017
 As a parent it is important to encourage healthy eating habits in the children from a young age. Try to cut down on sugar filled snacks. Instead of canned or frozen food try to use fresh ingredients in your cooking. You can be creative and make the snack more appealing to your children by making snacks using various themes. Some examples are : creating American flag with fruits, ants on a log with celery sticks and raisins.
