Gluten Free April Showers Cookies Recipe
Rain, rain go away! Or maybe not? I cannot believe how fast the month of April is flying by. Some of our favorite April moments? Baseball games, playground giggles and the smell in the air after the rain. Oh yes, we are getting our share of rainy days here in Florida. But that doesn’t slow my kids down. If you’re looking for a fun way to brighten your rainy days this April, check out this adorable Gluten Free April Showers Cookies Recipe. With the help of your kids, you can have the whole family smiling in this perfect rainy day activity.
My kids LOVE helping me in the kitchen. And when the rains come, my little cooks flock to the kitchen for the latest sweet creation. Inspired by our Florida rainy season, my littlest preschooler and I had a blast making our own April Showers Cookies! Just a few ingredients and little creativity, your kids will LOVE creating their very own rainy day inspired cookies with a smile. Rainy day activity and snack in one, we can turn our rainy frowns upside down.
