One of the most fun things we did today was make a sugar cookie in a cup. Most of the kids loved it. Cooking with children involves so many math skills. I didnt get one picture of this ! Here is the recipe if you want to try it at home.
Heat in your microwave until melted, about 30 seconds.
Add two tablespoons of granulated white sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of kosher salt.
Add one egg yolk. Do not include the egg white, discard or save for a different recipe.
Stir in egg yolk.
Add three level tablespoons of all-purpose flour.
Stir in flour.
Sprinkle on pretty colored sugar, plain white sugar, or whatever you have handy. Microwave for about 45 seconds, depending on the strength of your microwave.
You just made a sugar cookie from scratch, in the microwave! Can you believe it?

We had two more games on the table today. One game was a shape matching game .
The other game was a Christmas tree activity where you sequence the numbers and the lengths .
