Today I will share how you can make this easy cookie tray craft! My kids play with this all the time! When you are done check out these 12 Busy Toddler Activities.
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.
Now it was time to put the cookies on the tray!
They look good enough to eat!
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*
