I jumped on the trend train a few months ago and tested out Words with Friends on my iPhone. Needless to say, it took just 2 short months to go from a time killer to an addiction. But I like to count the Scrabble of the 21st century among my healthy obsessions. After all, it helps me learn new words like “VARS” (78 points) and “QI” (63 points). Do I know how to use those words in a sentence? Heck no.
My entire family is hooked on the game and we all enjoy the daily dose of healthy competition. So healthy, in fact, that we take screengrabs of our biggest plays and blast them out in group emails laced with shame. That type of behavior usually leads certain people to be left with Words with No Friends, but ultimately all humiliation is forgotten with the touch of the “re-match” button.
Gaming obsession aside, these buttery sugar cookies are a great way to bake up hours of educational and edible fun. Bakers of all ages can get their hands on these tiny sweets, icing them with different colors then topping them off with their favorite letters.
