Bake: Halloween cookies

Last Updated on

The 4yo had a friend round for a play date last week. I always like to have an activity of some sort planned, just in case boredom sets in (not that it generally does) – and it’s nice for them to take something home with them.

As it’s Halloween – just in case you hadn’t noticed! – I brought out the Halloween cookie cutters and sprinkles and let them make cookies. For a quick activity like this I love ready made cookie dough, in this case sugar cookies, as it’s so quick and easy to get them started!

First of all they cut out their shapes, they chose to make pumpkins, ghosts and bats. I popped them in the oven while they went outside to play and once they were ready, and cooled, I set up the table with all the icings and sprinkles that I had bought. Orange and black and white, with some candy corn and sugar googly eyes thrown in for good measure!

My 4yo and his friend had a great time, and they both got very creative with the candy corns and eyes – giving ghosts faces, pumpkins noses and bats claws! The 7yo asked to join in as well – his bat and alien ghost were particularly good!

The cookies themselves didn’t last very long though…!

    1. Some shapes seem to work better than others… I’ve done some that area just funny shaped blobs by the time they a cooked! I think keeping the dough fairly thin helps a bit too – but I’m not an expert, and Pillsbury provided the dough :)
