Dec. 16 - Paper Cookies


Today's craft was making cookies -- out of paper! We had some friends over to play and I was going to make and decorate real cookies, but decided the paper variety would be fun, and much less messy!
I traced cookie shapes from cookie cutters, and then cut them out while the kids colored the papers.
We glued the "cookies" to the paper plate and then added the "candies."
The only bad thing was that all these pretend goodies left my mouth watering for some REAL ones!

I like this idea! Cute! I'm thinking it would even be fun to make some out of craft foam to use in B's play kitchen.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours and look forward to reading more about your adventures!

I'm the president of a moms club and we recently had a party where we had planned to decorate cookies and made the same decision -- we just cut gingerbread men shapes out of foam, and had stickers, glitter glue, markers, etc. (we also decorated food bank boxes at the same time). Lots of fun! Love your blog. :)
