So here is day two of Anti-Bully week. We feel so strongly about this topic. We want to encourage kids and adults alike to be brave and to ditch the bully-like behaviors. So today we share a super easy and fun way to teach your kiddos about kindness. Even though giving doesn't stop bullies, it can set good habits for our kids. One of the best ways to teach the kiddos kindness is by giving them opportunities to give and be selfless. So making these cookies today is a great way to show love for your own kids as well as teaching your children to be kind to those around you. We try to bring cookies, brownies, or dinners to friends often. My kids love it as they get to give a portion of their goodies away (and of course we have a few ourselves). And I hope my kids learn as we share goodness with others that giving is a big part of friendship and can soften hearts.
So if you want to try to make some friendship cookies this week, maybe for a teacher or new friend, I wanted you to have bonafied AMAZING cookie recipe. My sister-in-law has made these cookies for a us so many times and they never get old. And these cookies aren't your normal chocolate chip cookies. These cookies have a few added ingredients such as oatmeal, corn flakes, and coconut. Yum. Seriously, they are delish. So here's a cookie recipe and way to get your children in the habit of looking to make others happy.
