Father's Day: Cookies From Kids

If your kids are wondering what to get their dad this year, these cookies go straight to the heart (and stomach). They also double as a fun activity! You can make your own sugar cookies, or opt for store-bought ones. Either way, the real charm comes in the decorating.

Step 2: Let cookies cool for at least 30 mins (icing will melt if too hot). Have an adult create a border around the edge of each cookie with icing (which should come in a package with a nozzle tip for easy decorating).
