My Son's Speech and Ocupational Therapy is over next week, and I wanted to make the 2 teachers some cookies. Can you ladies help me on some ideas on what to make like what shape and what to say on them.

Thanks so much

Yikes,
I'm completely drawing a blank. Are there some "trademark" type things associated with occupational or speech therapy that you may know of?
I suppose you could always do flowers or summer themed cookies with a "Thanks!" cookie in there.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.

You can never go wrong with simple cookies like flowers (as suggested by cookie fun), or smiley faces in bright colors. Make them on sticks for a cookie bouquet, and you've got a special treat that shows you put some thought and effort into the gift. If you go with a bouquet, find a pot you really like (or paint a clay pot any way you like) and use it as inspiration for the cookies. Let us all know what you come up with...post pictures!

Taking off on GeminiRJ's reply, you could paint your son's handprints on the clay pot. That would be a nice keepsake for them. As a former teacher, I really treasured those types of gifts! I still have some of the cards that were made for me. icon_rolleyes.gif

As was suggested, i would definately make a bunch of 'thank you' cookies (shape is your choice) and make a bouquet. That's what i did for my childrens' teachers at the end of the school year and they were very well received.

I think gemini's idea to find a pot first and then use that as the inspirationg for your cookies, is brilliant. I often find myself taking too much time trying to find the perfect vessel to hold my already decorated cookies (hard to find color and theme matches). Thanks Gemini!!

Thank you so much, I will do a small bouquet for each of them. Not sure which shape I am going to do yet. I will post as soon as they are done.



U Ladies R Great

flower shapes are the way to go and you could make leaf shapes to stick into the bouquets as fillers. Or you could make star shaped cookies. Or hearts
