Easy Monster Cookie Decorating with a Toddler

I know I know ๐Ÿ™„ Halloween is still like a month away but all the stores in my town has already started displaying all their Halloween stuff so it’s difficult for me not to be excited about it ๐Ÿ˜€ we love Halloween! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

I wanted Ryan to decorate some Halloween cookies together a couple weeks ago & usually, I will bake the cookies from scratch since I do enjoy baking but it was a busy weekend and honestly, heโ€™s 2 years old. Anything he decorates right now probably is going to be messy so I really didnโ€™t feel like baking cookies from scratch just to be totally messed up lol. So for mommies out there who wants a easier way, check out this easy Peasy Monster Cookies ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž


  • Store bought cookies (Mine was $1 shortbread from the Dollar Store)
  • Icing tubes of a few different colors
  • Candy Eyeballs (we had this at home but you could get them from Walmart or even some dollar stores)
  • Halloween soft candy (Didn’t end up using them at all so it’s optional)
  • Big Baking Tray (optional)
  • Commercial size aluminum foil (optional)

It’s pretty self explanatory from the pictures shown above. You could use other cookies shapes. I just chose the rectangular shortbread cookies so I can line them together so it is easier for him to decorate them. Bothe baking tray and aluminum foil is optional but they save me so much work in terms of cleaning up after. With a toddler, heโ€™s gonna get icing all over the place. So I just use my biggest baking tray and foil. At the end, wrap the whole thing and dump it. Easy Peasy….the way this Lazy Mommy likes it. I rather use my cleaning time to play with him or relax and drink my coffee lol. Thatโ€™s just me but to each their own ๐Ÿ˜€

Check out his video of decorating the cookies ๐Ÿ˜€ & share with us any other easy cookie decorating ideas!
