These 3 Ingredient Cookie Butter Cookies are super easy to make and so delicious that you will want to share them with all your friends!
Have you ever met someone and wanted to get to know them more but felt scared to talk to them? Well, we had a moment like that not too long ago with my kids meeting some new kids in our neighborhood. So we decided to bring a plate of one of our favorite cookies to “say hi” and break the ice (which would be these amazing cookies, btw!) It was an idea we had after reading the newest book from Mo Willems, Sam, the Most Scaredy-cat Kid in the Whole World. And it was just what my kids needed! Now they have a new friends to play with and they don’t feel scared to just go up and talk to them when they see them now!
Sam, the Most Scaredy-cat Kid in the Whole World by Mo Willems, just released last month as a companion book to 2005’s Leonardo, the Terrible Monster. The new release is about Sam who is afraid of anything and everything—except for his friend Leonardo, the terrible monster, and Kerry who is afraid of everything and anything—except for her friend Frankenthaler, the other monster. One day, the two scaredy-cat kids make a particularly scary discovery: each other! AAH! EEK!Something has to be done. Something BIG. But what?
This new book is super cute and a great way to encourage children to be brave and conquer their fears…especially if those fears involve making new friends. We read this snuggled up on the couch one night and my kids absolutely loved the message. We talked about how we can be kind and make new friends at school, at our after school activities, and even our neighborhood.
We decided that a great way to conquer a fear of my kids’ (which is going out of their comfort zones and making friends with someone they have only seen and never met) would be to actually go to a new neighbors home with a plate of cookies to “say hi”! Then once the ice was broken, they didn’t have to worry about not “knowing” them and could just walk right up and talk to them! And it worked like a charm…new friends for the win!
