We’ve been talking about the colours the leaves have been changing and today we made our own coloured leaves
I premade the sugar cookie dough and tinted it red, orange and green.
Then rolled the dough into little balls.
The children took a group of balls and placed them between waxed paper before
rolling out the dough.
There were mini, leaf shaped, cookie cutters to chose from.
Parents talked about the shapes of the cutters and the colours of the dough.
Amazingly from those three little balls of dough they were able to make
Time to bake.
This little boy was very interested in the cooking part and insisted on taking the pan to the oven.
So I took this opportunity to talk about time. We set the timer then he went back to play.
At one minute left I showed him the timer and we checked the cookies.
Love the smile on his face, anticipation.
One batch of sugar cookie dough provided enough mini cookies for three days of snack.
