One afternoon I'd pulled out every craft, puzzle, and toy in our house, and we still had HOURS of evening to fill. So, to the kitchen we went. Marcus loves helping pour and mix and stir, and of course, throw sprinkles on to anything I'll let him.
We decided we were ready to start our Valentine's prep. And Valentine Cake Mix Jello Cookies were born.
Let's talk about how easy and quick these were to whip up. Marcus was able to help with every aspect (minus the cracking of the egg), and he thought it was just the coolest to make the cookies almost totally himself.
