Valentine’s Day Cookies

19 Feb

I didn’t get to post earlier in the week about my Valentine’s Day celebration with my little guy.  I was never really into celebrating Valentine’s Day until my little man asked that we be festive.  A few weeks before he asked me to bake heart shaped cookies for his friends.  And so, the preparation for Valentine’s Day began – we made little Valentine’s for his friends and on the weekend before Valentine’s Day we baked shortbread heart shaped cookies.  My little man baked his own cookies and has his own baking tools.  I find baking and cooking with children really encourages them to be involved in what they are eating and learning about coooking! 

 It is a lot of work to have the children in the kitchen but I think the benefits are enormous.
