As you probably know, this time of year is super crazy busy with shopping for presents, decorating, holiday parties, looking at lights, shopping for presents, and of course more shopping for presents. Therefore I thought that this year, I would help all the busy mom and dads who want to do all the fun holiday stuff with their kids, but may not have all the time to do it all. Thus, I created cookie kits! All that is needed are kids (and/or adults) to decorate them. So no shopping for ingredients, baking (or cleaning up after baking)....just the fun stuff!
The kits were filled with a dozen large (4-5 inch) sugar cookies in three different shapes: gingerbread men, trees, and candy canes. Also included in the kit were buttercream frosting in three different shades (red, green, and white) and of course three different kinds of sprinkles. I also added a few mini plastic cups with lids to hold the sprinkles or to store any leftovers, a knife to spread the buttercream, and extra piping bags in case someone got extra motivated to try different size and shapes of tips (or to store leftover frosting).
Everything was nicely placed in these boxes with instructions on care and use of the kit. Lots of fun with little hassle! Look for more cookie kits to come in the near future! Also, these are perfect if you are having a birthday party and are looking for a fun activity to do with the little ones!
