I just had to share this. I thought y'all would appreciate it. icon_razz.gif

A few weeks ago, my 4-year-old son arrived home from preschool with a stuffed "Corduroy" bear in a canvas bag. He came with a disposable camera, a copy of "his" book, a journal and instructions: Corduroy takes turns spending the weekend with the different kids in the class and we're supposed to take pictures of what Corduroy does during his time at our house and write entries in the journal.

Well, of course, during his weekend at our house, Corduroy had to make cookies!

I've posted a few pix below (I hope.) I wish I had a copy of the one DH took of my son helping me cut out cookies with Corduroy looking on, but the school still has those. These were so much fun! The cookies went back to school with Corduroy after the weekend and every child got one.

Did you use royal icing or fondant?

Wow, what a cute idea! And the cookies are adorable! Can I just say I'd hate to be the mom of the next kid who gets Corduroy to take home. You'd be a tough act to follow! icon_wink.gif

Those are great - I'll bet the kids loved them!

You're a better mom than me -- I had great intentions to make cookies when my son did Flat Stanley, but it never happened...

Awww, thanks. icon_razz.gif I was fortunate that I just happened to have some rare "cookie" time that weekend!

They're sugar cookies covered with MMF. The green fondant was rolled on a texture mat to get the ridged corduroy look. They were a nice excuse to play with some new cookie toys. icon_wink.gif

Of course, then I completely let time get away from me and dropped the ball on cookies for the Valentine's Day party. Ah, well. They got juice boxes instead. icon_rolleyes.gif

The original book was written in 1968, so I remember seeing it around when I was an older kid. My kids even had "board books" of Corduroy's adventures. I still have my daughter's favorite memorized: "Corduroy is having a birthday party. He's invited all of his friends. On the day of the party, Corduroy is busy getting ready...."

Such beautiful illustrations. I love your cookies!

Awww, thanks so much guys. icon_redface.gificon_razz.gif

ziggytarheel, it's so nice to know I'm not the only one with that children's book (and many others) stuck in my brain!

Sandra Boynton's books are especially sticky. "You hear the door come crashing down ... the Birthday Monsters are in town!"

Betcha Birthday Monster cookies would be cute. Hmmm .... icon_biggrin.gif

Of course, now we're into Dr. Seuss. Try memorizing those ... that's fun. icon_rolleyes.gificon_wink.gif

I love your cookies and I loved the book Corduroy as a child. I have even bought them for my children to enjoy and they love the tv show too!

I'm making teddy bear cookies to send to my sister in Vegas as favors for her baby shower, and I think I'm going to use this technique. They are adorable!
