Merry Christmas and Welcome to “Dough Holy Night!”
This is a fun and interactive experience designed for your family to do at home. Together, you’ll bake a batch of Christmas cookies and, along the way, hear the story of the very first Christmas. Best of all, there’s a video that walks you step-by-step through the entire experience. It’s so simple!
Step 1: Gather the ingredients. David and Casey (a.k.a. “The Cookie Crew”) will show you how to make snickerdoodle cookies. You can see the list of ingredients and baking instructions below.
Step 2: Press play on the video. The video will walk you step-by-step through the entire experience. Occasionally, the Cookie Crew will tell you press pause and do something. When you’re finished, press play again. Take pictures of your family fun and share on the He's Alive Church Facebook Page or KidMin Families Page (for access email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 3: Eat cookies. Possibly the best step ever! When the timer goes off, enjoy your cookies while David and Casey remind your family why Jesus is the sweetest part of Christmas.
