If you have a very young wanna be cook in the family, letting that child turn on an oven to bake cookies is not recommended. Allowing that child to create tasty cookies without the use of an oven is a great idea, though, and one you can easily put into motion with the Melissa & Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Set. With this creative cookie kit your child will be able to make a dozen gourmet style cookies with a dozen different tasty looking icings and decorations. You can rest assured your child will have hours of safe fun as a make-believe baker equipped with a baking sheet made of wood to bake the cookies on and other baking tools. Also included is a colorful mitt. The Melissa & Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Set is suitable for 3-year-olds and older children.
