This week for Tot School Tuesday, we had a cookie decorating play date with a couple of Logan’s little neighborhood friends. Fun activities like this make for great educational opportunities, without even trying. Cookie decorating can give those fine motor skills a workout and the different textured sprinkles makes for great sensory play. You can also work on color identification, shape identification, sorting and language development through just simply playing.
I covered my table with a vinyl tablecloth, filled mini muffin tins with different sized edible decorations and let the kids go to town. The adults helped with the icing and the kids sprinkled their little hearts out. The ages in the play group ranged from 2-4 and they were all totally into it, especially the taste testing. I’m always amazed at how patient Logan is with activities like this, placing each individual sprinkle gently on the cookie and creating whatever fun pattern comes to his creative little mind. You can see the pride beaming from his face when I compliment him on his cookie decorating skills.
