Will work for food (3/5/09)

The kids have been in the house more often than none and getting bored with the daily "stuff", so... Mommy had one of her "great ideas" to change up the daily routine --> we would make & bake cookies and pizza! Yes, you read it right-- I said WE (which entails me, two 4.5 yr. olds, and four 3 yr. olds) would be making and baking. They were all SO excited and couldn't wait to get their hands dirty! :)
We started off with making Peanut Butter cookies. I prepared the dough, gave each of them a ball of dough, the rolled it around, and then took turns pressing the cookies down. They all did pretty well with this process.

















Now... it's time for PIZZA! Thank goodness for the Boboli ready-made pizza crusts! :) Even though all I had the kids do was add they cheese, they were satisfied with & proud of what they had done... just like BIG boys and girls. :)




















They watched their "creations" bake.













Teh finished product... their creations. Not bad for being made by 6 "little ones", huh? They look YUMMY!












And finally... it was time to EAT! They really enjoyed this lunch-- YUM!
