Holiday Sugar Cookies are super easy to make and delicious to eat! I made these sugar cookies with my four year old son and we had a blast together. He loved rolling the sugar cookie dough into balls and then rolling them in the colored sugar. I will defiantly be making these again on Christmas break with all my boys and I will also make some Crockpot Hot Cocoa for us to enjoy with the cookies!
These Holiday Sugar Cookies would be perfect for a How the Grinch Stole Christmas Party too!
