Any kind of cookie can be a Christmas cookie if you bake it during December, but the most Christmasy cookies are the kind that are cut out with cookie cutters and decorated by hand, whether with frosting or with sprinkles and candy. The Christmas cookie season is one time of year when the whole family can get involved in the kitchen, largely because even the littlest kids can help out with the decorating (and eating). There are lots of kid-friendly baking accessories out there, but none of them are quite as cute as this Gingerbread Kids Apron & Mitt Set.
The apron, which measures 21×25-inches, is made of 100% cotton and is shaped like a cookie gingerbread man – buttons, eyes and all. The straps that tie at the neck and around the waist have a candy cane-like stripe to them. Because of the shape of the apron, when it is tied on, it looks like the child is getting a hug from a giant cookie. The oven mitt is also cotton and follows the same styling. It will depend on the age of your child if you want to let him or her lift the cookie sheet from the oven, but this will keep their hands safe in a kitchen with potentially hot equipment.
This is one set that will make a very cute pre-Christmas gift to get everyone into the holiday/cooking-baking spirit!
