Match the Cookies

What you need:

  • cookie dough (prepared, or your own recipe) 
  • cookie cutters 
  • food coloring 
  • toppings, such as sprinkles, raisins, frosting


What to do:

  1. As your child grasps the concept of matching, he can take ownership and exercise his creativity by figuring out different ways to make matches.
  2. Prepare cookie dough and set out hand cookie cutters, food coloring, and different toppings. 
  3. Help your child create as many variations of "cookie matches" as he can think of: matching by shape, by topping (a square and triangle both topped with blue sprinkles), and by color.
