’Tis the season for baking cookies! Get baking with your little ones and try out one of these decorating tips for extra special treats.
🍪 Use marshmallows as icing — add a few mini marshmallows to your cookies and pop them into the oven just until the marshmallows melt.
🍪 Press pasta into your dough! Pull out the penne and press the end of it onto your cookies for a cool petal design. Or try bow ties for a fancy treat.
🍪 Take a whisk, dip it into food coloring (or powdered drink mixes) and then press the whisk into your dough for a colorful star design.
What’s your favorite way to decorate cookies?

As a parent, you’re likely used to your child asking questions. In fact, according to a recent study conducted by OnePoll and The Goddard School®, Parents field an average of 11 questions from their young children each day. Children most commonly ask questions to better understand the world around them, such as asking about animals, nature, current events and home experiences.
