Chocolate chips, that is. And your favorite chocolate chip cookies recipe and a few cute kiddos. It is time to celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!! Thursday, May 15th is the day set aside to enjoy this delicious yumminess.
What is a mom to do? While we are mixing up that cookie dough, we can mix up some fun and yummy learning, too. I’m not sure about your kiddos but I know mine might get a little more excited about math if it includes chocolate chip cookies and a nice cold glass of milk.
Ten Ways to Celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day:
1- Make a batch of cookies and deliver to your neighbor or a friend who needs a smile.
2 – Read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff with your little ones. Then head over to my Pinterest board: Chocolate Chip Cookie Day for some fun printables and activities.
3- Invite friends over and have a chocolate chip cookie baking party.
4- Host a chocolate chip cookie baking contest. I’m sure there will be plenty of volunteers to judge.
5- Do a bit of geography and locate the places the ingredients for the chocolate chip cookies come from.
6- Pour chocolate chips into a jar. Let your children guess or estimate how many chips are in the jar. Have an official count and the winner receives a giant chocolate chip cookie made especially for them!
7 – Do some experimenting! What other yummy additions can you put in your cookies to partner with the chips? Sprinkles? Peanut butter chips? M&Ms? No raisins!
8 – Make chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches to enjoy as a cool treat.
9- Have a scavenger hunt. Write clues on cookie cut outs and hide them. The scavenger hunt ends with a cookie celebration. Yum!
10- Get the creative juices flowing and have everyone write a story that includes chocolate chip cookies. Why not munch on a cookie while writing?
I need to make sure we have plenty of chocolate chips for Thursday! I can’t wait.
If you enjoy cookies on Thursday, please share the fun and leave a comment!
