Making Cookies with Preschoolers

valerie | Dec 13, 2008 07:41 AM

I am going in to my daughter's preschool class on Tuesday to make cookies for Hanukkah. My original plan was to make the sugar cookies discussed in this thread ahead of time and just bring them in to the class with a bunch of frostings/decorations, but the teachers would rather have me actually make the cookies in class. So I went back to make a list of ingredients that I need to buy and I realized that the dough needs to be refrigerated for a while, or overnight, before cutting into shapes.

So now I'm not sure what to do. This is class of 12 kids -- mostly age 4. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to best approach this? I will bring in all of the ingredients and cookie cutters but there really is no time to let the cookie dough chill.

They do not have to necessarily be sugar cookies, just nothing with nuts. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks...
