DIY: Scissors Cookies {Crafting at School Party}

The first days of school are here again...so have a Crafting at School party for your kids {nephews or even a block party!}

Activity: Have everyone decorate their "Back to School" theme cookies.

Set a small table and chairs, assign a decorating station for all of your guests! 

You will need:

1 set of "Back to School" theme cookies {2 or 3 per guest}
Royal icing in pastry bags, in 4-5 different colors
Sprinkles, sugar crystals


And since you can't have a Crafty Party without scissors...you must have a few of these cute Scissors shaped cookies!

Here's how you can make your own:

You will need these cookie cutters: 
X & ♥

Cut your cookie dough with each of the cookie cutters. Then cut each cookie shape into half and pull them together to form a Scissors shape cookie (as shown on pic)

Bake your cookies for 10 minutes. Have them ready for your little guests to decorate them :)

Teach them hoe to outline the scissors shape following the simple steps on the pictures!

The final touch... add a cute sprinkle or heart on top of the scissors and they will be ready to cut!
