Easy No-Sew Felt Christmas Cookies **25 Days of Christmas Play**


Day 2 of 25 Days of Christmas Play

This was the play invitation I had set up for Big Sister today.  It was so easy to make these No-Sew Felt cookies...15 minutes tops.  And, with an hour+ of imaginative play time, I think it was a good investment!

I had the felt here at the house, but I've seen packs of multi-colored felt sheets at the dollar store.  You could make a bunch of these little cookies for less than a buck.

I don't have any pictures of the process of making the cookies, because it seriously was so easy to make...
1. Trace the cookie cutters on felt.
2. Cut the shape just inside of your pen mark.
3. Trace another of the same shape on the "icing" color.
4. Cut the "icing" color about 1/2 inch smaller than your pen mark.
Done!

Add some of your whisk, spatula, cookie sheet, oven mitt, and get ready for some cheers in your house :)


 
Mixing up a little gingerbread dough with the whisk requires bilateral hand coordination to hold the bowl and stir the whisk. 

 
After mixing, you cut out the shapes with the cookie cutters.

 
 
 
Then, spread on the icing!
 
 
 
These cookies were perfect for pretend play, multi-step direction following, child-led play, bilateral hand coordination, and imagination.
 


Big Sister had so much fun making cookies for Baby Girl and me...adding sprinkles, matching the icing shape to the cookie shape.  It's a new addition to the play kitchen food.  I'm ready for lots of yummy fuzzy cookies ;)
