My kids love working in their play kitchen. One of their favorite toys has been a birthday gift they received this summer, Melissa and Doug's Slice and Bake Cookie Set. Here is ours, minus a few cookies which I imagine are wedged under a seat in the car.
The problem with the cookie set is that the kids fight over it. I didn't feel like buying another one because the kids were having a hard time sharing, but when I saw the December 2011 issue of Food Network Magazine (thanks to my mom for getting me a subscription!) I hit upon my solution.
I saw this two page ad for Crisco that had lots of pictures of yummy looking cookies. Each cookie picture could be peeled off, revealing a recipe on the back. When I saw these, I was inspired to make my own cookie sheet tray.
Supplies You Will Need:
- Magazine photos of cookies (there are lots this time of year) or you can print out your own
- Glue stick
- Cookie Tray (I found mine at the dollar store.)
I traced the cookies onto the cardboard and cut them out.
Then I glued the cookie pictures on the cardboard.
After that I wanted to make sure the edges wouldn't come up. I had originally thought the solution was clear contact paper, but that didn't work so well. I tried scotch tape next and it was perfect. I just taped all the edges. Here is what the back looked like.
Next I cut the Velcro into squares and placed six pieces onto the cookie tray. I placed another piece of Velcro on the back of the cookies.
Here is my cookie tray and the Melissa and Dog set. I think they complement each other well.
The kids loved playing with their new cookie set.
Now if I could just get them to share. *SIGH*
