I normally don't have the patience for them, but cut-out cookies are a must for the holidays. We made gingerbread snowflakes the other day using Martha Stewart's recipe. Max was very interested in the cookie cutters. He made the snowman and gingerbread man cutters battle while I measured out ingredients. He was very helpful, but lost interest in the process while the dough chilled. When it was time to cut them out and bake, he said, "Mom, you just do it yourself."
Somehow I know that for the next 8 or so years, these will be the first ornaments to "fall" off the tree.
