I have offered to make cookies for my son's end of the year preschool party. I'm thinking maybe smiley faces or smiling stars. I just want to get some more ideas.
What shape/design would you suggest?
hi! can your cookies be tied in to an activity? maybe make some round, square, or rectangle cookies and flood them with royal icing. bring in some edible markers and let the kids "draw" their own designs on the cookies.
Kids seem to be in love with faces, I'd make them all different, and all silly faces. Squiggly mouths, surprised looking eyebrows, you could probably google silly faces and come up with a lot to copy from.
-Summer theme for the vacations
I second the idea to send in flooded cookies and markers and have them color their own cookies. It's food and an activity all in one.
However, it could get expensive to buy enough markers for all the kids to use. Smiley faces are definately the way to go.
I did a sun-shaped cake, with a face (wearing sunglasses and a big smile) for my daughter's end-of-year preschool party last year. I was thinking that a summer/vacation theme made sense, and it went over really well.
For my daughters preschool class I made cookies shaped like ice cream cones. It was a huge hit, just in time for summer!
Thanks all for your ideas!
Now, where do you get your cookie cutters?
The Michael's store that I frequent got rid of all of their single cutters.
I have a lot of cutters from foosecookiecutters.com
when my son was in pre-school a few year back, the kids loved bug cookies of any sort, lol. the caterpillars i did were the biggest hit that year for both boys and girls, and the girls loved the butterflies.
just confirm with the director that this is ok. our daycare/preschool requires that the cookies/cakes for the kids comes directly from the grocery or baker's with the ingredients listed.
soemthing like these would work well. I just got a frog sun, flower and butterfly cutter from the local cake decorating store.
I just made some for my sons class, I iced a bunch of butterflies in white icing I piped a brown body and brought in all the plain white cookie with some edible markers. The kids were just so thrilled to decorate and the bonus is it was much faster for me.
I ended up making baseballs for the boys with their name on it.
Flowers with the girls' names on each. And a bigger Flower for the teachers.
The flowers didn't come out the way I wanted but it was getting late.
They all loved them and that's all that counts!
I'm going to upload them into my pictures if you're interested in seeing them.
