Bake Stenciled Letter Cookies
In kindergarten, kids practice their letters and sounds endlessly, and there’s good reason: to build solid early reading skills, kids need to know their letters and sounds backward and forward, automatically.
Here’s a baking activity that also makes a nice gift at the holiday season. Do it with one child or a few—and, as always, enjoy those letters and sounds!

- Package of refrigerated cookie dough
- Rolling pin, flour and round cookie cutters
