Description

Now kids can do more than just eat cookies with the help of this book in the Kids Can Do It series. They can learn how to bake and build holiday decorations and wreaths, a garden of cookie flowers and candleholders -- all from cookie dough. It's fun and easy, and the best part is you can eat your mistakes! Bake It and Build It includes delicious cookie dough recipes kids can taste-test as they learn how to cut out shapes, "glue" them together and decorate their cookie creations. There are also patterns for an impressive cookie castle and for a Thanksgiving turkey the whole family can gobble up! Clear instructions and step-by-step illustrations make each project easy for kids to build on their own.
