I wanted to make some cookies for putti's bday party, but when i searched on the internet all i found was crayon shaped or paint brush shaped cookies. And finally i found these lovely cookies made by little kids themselves. After seeing these, i thought of turning into an activity for the kids on the party day. But then i realised the food markers they mentioned was expensive. And the thought of using food colors with 5 little kids gave me jitters. So i dropped that idea and made these with putti.
First i baked sugar cookies as per my favorite recipe and frosted them with icing.
Once they were dried mixed food colors with water and gave them to putti to paint. She enjoyed the whole process and she at times asked for ideas when i told her to make "face, sun, dots, lines" And since i put four cookies on her plate each time, all the designs - face, sun, lines are in a set of four:)
