Tips
Spoon some of the blue frosting into a small resealable food-storage plastic bag; cut off a tiny corner of bag and pipe each child’s name across the cuff of a mitten.
Bake the cookies a day ahead and store them in an airtight container. Get the frosting and decorating items ready, and let the kids help decorate.
