Weekend Planner

Cookie Monsters

December 4-6, 2015

With the holiday season underway, you've likely been baking up a storm. Get your kids involved and turn this weekend into a cookie-baking bonanza. Let your little one choose her favorite cookie recipe to bake, and then have her help you find the ingredients at the grocery store. Once the cookies have cooled, set the table up with all your favorite cookie toppings, and let the decorating begin! Afterwards, cook up a deliciously special meal to share as a family, break out the dessert-inspired board games, and settle in for a sweet, family-friendly movie.
