Make a cookie kit with dough, sprinkles, frosting, and cookie cutters. It’s an experience and it’s tangible — all at the same time!
My mom has always been a great one to help parents enjoy more quality time with their kids. I remember about thirty years ago driving around town with her delivering Christmas gifts.
She had crafted cookie kits. Rather than spend time and effort baking up cookies that folks may or may not have room to eat in their holiday menus, she gifted them with homemade cookie dough and the ingredients necessary to decorate them with the kids. It was a tangible gift as well as an experiential one.
This is a super easy and frugal gift to put together. Homemade cookie dough is easy enough to whip together in just a few minutes with pantry staples. Form the dough into a log and then add a container of sprinkles or a tube of frosting. If you want to inspire your friends further, include a few baked cookies that they can enjoy while they’re crafting and cooking.
You can even make the dough in advance and freeze it, thus saving you time by working ahead of schedule. Total win!
Tell us! Psst… On Friday, I’ll be sharing a fabulous Holiday Baking for the Freezer plan as well as the recipe for these very yummy cookies.
This is part of the DIY on a Dime: Great Gifts series. For more easy and frugal gift ideas, check out the list.
