Monster Cookies for Kids

Pin It
Want a simple way to make a fun treat for Halloween? Look no further! Cooking with kids allows an opportunity to explore math and have fun. Making these monster cookies does just that, while offering time for bonding and a yummy treat afterward.
My kids love monster books (and pretending to be monsters.)  Some of our favorites are Leonardo the Terrible Monster, Go Away, Big Green Monster, and The Monster at the End of This Book.

The other day we were making a batch of chocolate-chocolate chip cookies using chocolate cake mix and adding a cup of chocolate chips.  I had lots of edible eyes and also some miniature marshmallows in the cupboard, so we made our cookies into monster cookies.
We added the edible eyes and marshmallow teeth while the cookies were still warm but not too hot to touch.  The thing that makes this perfect for preschoolers is there's no wrong way to do it.  How can a monster have too many eyes? Or teeth?

So head to the kitchen and cook up some Halloween fun with this activity!
