Easter Cookies

Easter Cookies
Last week we went up to grandma’s for a visit.  It was great because some of the cousins were going to be their and both my girls were really excited to see them.  Since the weather was not going to be all that great and the kids were most likely going to have to stay inside the entire time, I wanted to think of something fun they could all do (wide range of ages) that would be fun.  That is when I decided we could make some Easter Cookies!

I know Easter is still a few weeks off, but I had bought this Easter Egg Cookie Cutter this year and was itching to use it and I thought it would leave a lot of room for everyone to be creative.  It ended up working out great, I made the cookies at home and then just brought them with us and then we set up the table with all the decorating supplies and called the kids over.  They all had a blast decorating.  It turned out to be a great time for all of us because all the adults really enjoyed watching the decorating.  And of course we all enjoyed eating them!
