I know I said that this month was no-Kopykake month but I can’t help but make an exception for the Father’s Day cookies we made this year.
I would love to take credit for such an adorable idea, but my amazingly creative friend Kim actually came up with it. Besides being a talented decorator, Kim is also the mother of two very small children. The balance she’s found between kids and cookie life never ceases to amaze me. I’m always inspired by the kid-friendly cookie ideas she comes up with. She’s a daily reminder of how important it is to be the best mom I can be.
Cut plain white paper into 4-6 pieces and let your kids draw away. Large simple images seem to work best, but rather than micromanage I let them do their thing then picked out my faves.
I also loved the memories we created and being reminded of the little things that matter most…like the fact that two-thirds of my children inherited this little habit from me.
Happy Father’s Day!
