Sit out all the ingredients you will need. Also get out a mixer, spoons, measuring cups, and a cookie sheet. If you do not have an electric mixer, you can use hand mixers or a spoon. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees before you start mixing so the oven is ready when you are done with the mix.
Have the kids pour in all the wet ingredients first and mix. Then let them repeat this with the dry ingredients. My son loves this part!
Once the batter is all mixed up, it is time to spoon it out on to the cookie sheet. I cover my cookie sheet with foil first.
When the cookie sheet is filled with cookie dough, place it in the oven and bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly brown.
