Pumpkin Sugar Cookies
Every Halloween we have to decorate pumpkin sugar cookies with candy corn and chocolate chips. It just doesn't feel like Halloween season until we do. I was lazy this year and used canned frosting (eek!). When I made the sugar cookies on a stick for the baby shower, I cut out some pumpkins, baked them, and froze them for this activity, so I didn't have to make another sugar cookie mess. (As you can tell from the photo, my kitchen was already enough a mess) I let them decorate 2 each. Christopher liked to spread the frosting around with his fingers as well as his knife. You know it's a good activity when your kiddos tell you several times how much they love frosting the cookies and thank you for planning it.
