Simple Christmas Cookies with Sprinkles

This holiday sprinkle cookie recipe is supposed to be easy, so let it be easy!

The holiday season gets so busy and many of us bake Christmas cookies as part of our holiday traditions.

Sometimes we simply don’t have the time to bake everything from scratch and I want to let you in on a little secret… it’s ok if you don’t bake all the cookies from scratch.

It is perfectly fine to use prepared dough, slice and bake, or plain baked sugar cookies from the store to decorate with your kids. 

You can even use this activity for kids to practice practical life skills. 

Older children can practice reading and following directions on the cookie packaging. Little kids can practice fine motor skills by frosting and adding sprinkles. 

It is an easy baking activity that’s fun for the whole family!
