Crazy Creative Colorful Cookies

These fun, colorful sugar cookies are not only easy to make, but they will keep your kids entertained for a couple of hours. It's like playing with Play-Doh, but you get to eat your creative artwork when you're done. You can use these cookies for an "edible craft" afternoon or to make custom gifts for holidays and birthdays. The kids (and adults) will enjoy sharing their creativity though cookie art and edible creations. Kids can do self portrait cookies, reproductions of their favorite cartoon characters or anything they can imagine. Enjoy the process and enjoy the results!
