Fun and Easy Cookie Decorating with Kids
So many precious and lasting memories happen in the kitchen. Spending time with your kids creating something fun and delicious is one of my favorite ways to bond.
There is nothing quite like watching your child’s creativity bloom! Wilton Cookie Creations* are an amazing way to spend time decorating cookies with your kids and encourages a love for baking.
My daughters LOVE to help me in the kitchen. Whether I am prepping for a birthday party or making treats for a playdate, they get excited when I bust out the icing and sprinkles!
Their favorite part of baking together, however, is getting to take the reins and create something beautiful themselves! Knowing this, I was stoked to let them use the Wilton Cookie Creations kit. Wilton sent me the Cookie Creations Kit for free, so that I could review it.*

There are so many amazing cookie decorating ideas for kids. Teaching them the basic skills of using icing bags and smoothing frosting may seem like a daunting task, but given the right tools, it can be a wonderful time of giggles and licking extra frosting off of spoons!

Highlights of the Cookie Creations Decorating Kits

These designs include:

- Fantasy Castle Cookie Kit

We used the Space Exploration Cookie Kit and loved every minute of it!
My Honest Opinion of Wilton Cookie Creations:
Easy to use: My daughters and I found it extremely easy to use. The kit had the cookies ready to go with design grooves baked into them.
All the frosting came in sealed bags and the kit included icing bags and plastic tips to make the process efficient.
Clean Fun: So if you have ever experienced kids and cookie decorating with icing…you know that a mess is about to happen! Icing, sprinkles, crumbs…meet floor! Am I right?
This was honestly one of the CLEANEST my kids have ever been with cookie decorating. I think this actually has a lot to do with the packaging. We cut the corner of the bags the icing came in, placed it inside the prepped icing bag and squeezed. It was easy and mess free!
I would definitely recommend these kits to other parents wanting to let their kids decorate cookies. It was so much fun to watch their little personalities sparkle as they decorated!
If you are nervous about knowing how to decorate the cookies, instructions are included. This was perfect for my rule following child (aka the one who looks up pictures of princesses on her iPad while she is coloring to make sure their outfits are the right colors).
