{4th of July Color-a-Cookie}

10:15 PM

4th of July is a fun time to get together with Family and Friends, enjoy some great food, desserts and fireworks depending on how you spend your holiday.

We have a fun and sweet project to occupy the kiddos for a little while. 

Print out of your image on edible image paper
Edible/Food writer markers
Sugar cookies
Kitchen Shears

I found a 4th of July image on Google and resized it in Microsoft Word. I made it about 2 inches, expecting that my cookies would be about that size (you can make larger for larger sized cookies). I filled the sheet with the image and was able to get about 12 images on one full sheet, I then printed the filled sheet in black and white. I went to my local Kroger store, to the bakery department, and asked to have my image printed on edible image paper.

This is where the magic happens! Put a thin layer of icing on each cookie. Give each child an iced cookie, an edible image and edible image markers. They can color in their image prior to putting it on their cookie or after. If coloring after putting it on the cookie, tell them to color lightly so it doesn't rip the edible image. If after, slowly remove the backing from the image and lay over the layer of icing on top of the cookie. Fizz, Bang, Pop! The kids have their own colored cookie!
