Hook-a-CookieIf you are following Hip little one on Facebook you may have seen the photo I posted yesterday of our Friday cookie creations. The kids had so much fun using the Hook-a-Cookie Cutters ($5.95, Minifashionista), I should have pulled them out of the box ages ago. To try and limit the mess I made the dough myself and just let them do the cutting which worked really well. The cookies turned out tasty too so everyone was happy.

After seeing how much my tribe enjoyed our time in the kitchen I am determined to do it again soon, so I am now on the hunt for some other cool cookie cutters to use.

Fred Letter PressedI am definitely going to grab this Fred Letter Pressed Set ($20.95, Gigglepot Kids) as I know they will love it and it will keep them busy for ages. This set contains all the letters of the alphabet so it is educational too, kids can spell their own name, words or a special message. How cute would a box of home made ‘Merry Christmas cookies’ be? Big bonus: No arguments about who made which cookie, the letters will speak for themselves.

Looking forward to sharing some more of our kitchen adventures with you soon.

Before I moved to Australia I had never heard of Movember. Of course by now I understand the purpose of this hairy concept but it has not changed my opinion on moustaches and beards, they just don’t appeal to me. I am glad my husband doesn’t take part in the hairgrowing part of Movember, we’ll just stick to the sponsoring part instead. Whether you love or loathe hairy faces, you can’t help but adore these MUNCHstaches from Minifashionista.

With MUNCHstaches you don’t have to worry about crumbs on your upperlip, they are supposed to be there! Each set contains five different cookie cutters in the shape of moustaches, one side cuts the shape and the other stamps the details into your very own edible moustache. Do you like your moustache thick and bristly or curled at the tips? If you don’t like the look you just eat it and try the next one.

During this Movember month Minifashionista is donating 25% of the profits of these fabulous MUNCHstaches kits to Men’s Health, so your baking fun and dressing up games are doing much more than just give you a laugh. You could even sell some homemade MUNCHstaches and raise funds for this great chairity! A 5-piece kit costs $14.95, the cutters are made of durable, food-safe plastics and packed in a reusable storage tray.
