To make the cookies you'll need scales, mixing bowl, tablespoon, wooden spoon, children’s scissors, baking tray and baking parchment.
For this, everything needs to be weighed/laid out beforehand. Cutting apricots with children’s scissors makes light work of the job, and means younger kids can own the task of chopping without using a knife. Dividing the mixture into 6 even-sized balls will teach kids basic division. Dividing by eye will come with practice and is easier for older children. To teach older kids about numbers, you can use electric scales to make sure each ball is roughly the same weight.
