Coloring Cookies

These were a hit at Averie’s Rainbow Artist Birthday party, and I’ve made them a few times for friends since then.  I mean, what kid doesn’t want to color on their food and then eat it?!

You could make the cookies into a fun shape, do ornament shapes for Christmas, a cake shape for birthdays, pumpkin shapes for halloween…. the possibilities are endless.

I prefer just giving the kids a blank canvas to work from, plain white background and letting them have at it:

Pair the cookies up with either some inexpensive Wilton Food Coloring Markers that you can pickup even at Walmart or my preferred brand – Americolor Gourmet Writers and you have at least a good 10 minutes of entertainment out of a group of preschoolers, which is no easy feat!
