Valentine's Sugar Cookie Recipe

W H O  L I K E S  B A K I N G  ?

Is that a 'Yes' I hear ? Well, heres an activity that's bound to get your little ones involved!

Sugar Cookies are quick & easy to make and a super fun sensory activity to do with your little one. It helps provide a range of Early Years development skills such as focus and attention, hand eye coordination, language (as they talk about what they do), patience (this may also apply to yourself HA) and those all important tasting experiences as they go.

I've just made these with my 3 year old nephew as a Valentine's gift for his mummy, and we had an absolute blast! Lots of giggles, lots of mess, what's not to love! So roll up your sleeves and enjoy!
