For a cookie decorating kids cooking party kids get a chance to get
a hands on experience, decorate the finished product and be
able to eat what they created. Another option for the party is to
make the dough ahead of time and just have the cooking party do the
rolling out the dough and decorating.
Once you know the number of children coming go through the list of
things needed especially utensils, bowls, etc. If you need extra ask
friends or family if you can borrow some items for your cookie
decorating kids cooking party.

Cookie Decorating Recipe
We are going to follow the recipes from the following page- cookie
You can choose one of the three cut out cookie recipes on this
page- basic sugar cookie dough, simple sugar cookie recipe, or brown
sugar and spice cut out cookies. Any of these recipes will make a
great dough for the cookie decorating kids cooking party.
When preparing the recipe allow kids to take turns adding and
stirring ingredients in a large mixing bowl so everyone gets a turn.
You should be able to use the dough without chilling it for several
hours. When dough is complete give each child a portion of the dough
and allow them to roll out the dough on a floured surface. Cut out
cookies with cookie cutter and place on cookie sheet. Have an adult
bake and allow cookies to cool. While you are waiting for cookies to
cook and cool, prepare another recipe you have planned, decorate
aprons, chef hats or play cooking games.
Set table with frosting, table knives and sprinkles. Allow kids to
decorate and place on a paper plate or shallow box to take home.
Cookie Decorating Kids Cooking party- Cookie Pops
If you'd like to keep the cookie party simpler have the kids prep
cookie pops and decorate when they have cooled.
They are easy to make using the same cookie dough recipes suggested
above, cut circles out of the rolled dough. Place on a cookie sheet
leaving room for sucker sticks. Press a stick into each cookie and
bake. The cookie will rise over the stick and hold it in place.
Allow to cool and decorate. You can place the kids decorated cookies
in a sandwich baggie tied with ribbon to take home.
