My daughter loves cookies so I found this simple ginger cookie and it has no eggs (which is a bonus for me). I've decorated the cookies few different ways. Example: sprinkle pink edible glitters or hundred and thousands or left the cookie with no decoration and icing. You can use what ever shape you fancy. Whatever variations I made with my 3 year old she enjoyed them. I found this recipe in a booked called "The Great Big Cookie Book" by Hilaire Walden. It was in the kid's section of the book.
