Magic Potion Cookies
Let the kids figure out what to add in. Let them try combinations and measure them out themselves. Nothing's more fun than a “magic potion” cooked up by mad scientists. Who knows? You might invent a favorite cookie.

Kids love to mix foods. While they might scream when the macaroni touches the green beans, they'll sometimes jump at the chance to brew concoctions. Let them get imaginative with the add-ins. They'll love the sense of involvement and the cookies they produce!
