The next time you and your child bake cookies, why not turn your favorite cookie dough into the letters of the alphabet? Your child can enjoy the fun of measuring, stirring and rolling out the dough while practicing her letters. A set of alphabet cookie cutters is not necessary. Just use a butter knife to cut out the shapes that your child traces in the dough. You can even take it a step further and form simple words on the cookie sheet. Either way, she'll gobble up her work!
