We love baking easy cookie recipes especially on a rainy day.
You may like to make this into an interesting learning experience.
You can start with asking the children to choose a cookie recipe.
This helps kids to learn independence.
We hope you enjoy the free cookie recipes on this page.
When you are ready to make a cookie, help kids to don aprons and thoroughly wash their hands.
The children can then collect ingredients ready to weigh them out.
We find it easier to work at the dining room table as this gives us more space to work, and it is a better height for children to work at.
Here you will find a collection of cookie recipes for kids activities
which you will find really useful
