Want a couple extra minutes to finish your morning coffee or get that last bite of breakfast in? Here's a delicious activity that lets your preschooler prepare her own fun and healthy snack using cookie cutters. What food isn’t more appealing when it’s shaped like a little bunny? And also, not only will your child get a fun treat she's chosen herself, but she'll get to practice responsibility and fine motor skills at the same time!
