How can my kids help?  
Have kids help dump all ingredients into the stand mixer. Also, have them press the chocolate chips onto the cookie tops before baking.
Make sure cookies cool completely before storing. In an airtight sealed container store the cookies at room temperature. Also, the last thing you want is your cookies sticking together. Place a piece of parchment paper in between layers.
Tip:  when mixing your ingredients using a kitchen aid stand mixer, use the wire whip attachment for mixing the sugars and eggs.  Once you start to mix the flour switch the attachment to the flex edge beater.
