IT’S FATHER’S DAY! LET’S MAKE DESSERT!
Cooking and baking are educational and FUN!
- They use math skills such as counting and measuring.
- They use reading skills such as following a sequence and following directions.
Cookies are a great Father’s Day gift.
We found one from the Food Network that’s “no-bake”, and easy to store and even take on a picnic.
