Chocolate Chip Cookies, Made by my Boys

During the summer months, kids have more time. This is a good thing! But sometimes they have a hard time knowing what to DO with all of that extra time.

Today when my oldest two wanted to make chocolate chip cookies, I could have JUMPED on the idea! YES! This was a GREAT way to spend time: fun, educational, and good for the rest of us too! (…or not, depending on how you look at it.)

I did learn one thing. When my 11 year old asked if he could fill this little plastic gumball-machine-prize-holder with cookie dough, I should have asked more questions before saying “yes”. It was also a good thing I checked on the pizza that was cooking along with their cookies a few minutes later… because he had it baking in the oven! He was trying to make a “round cookie”!


It would have been a “melted mess”!oopsThe best part was at the end, when my sons brought out this cookie made special, for me:Benjamin with Heart Cookie
It says, “I Love Mom.” 🙂

Making chocolate chip cookies will definitely be at the top of our “boredom-breaker” list this summer!

    I’m glad you found the plastic before summer boredom was a thing of the past, thanks to a great deal of scrubbing needed. That wouldn’t have been fun. That cookie, though, looks fun! Kids in the kitchen is one of my favorite things. 🙂

      This was probably the biggest baking project the boys ever took on entirely by themselves. It is amazing they are big enough to do these things! I was concerned when I heard “1/2 a tablespoon of vanilla” when the recipe calls for 1/2 a TEASPOON, but I told them what the abbreviation meant, and the cookies tasted wonderful. 🙂
