Adopt Your Favorite Cookie Party

Let your child have a cookie themed birthday party! Use cookie themed invitations that explain the following and include a blank adoption certificate:

• Congratulations on selecting a great theme for a children’s birthday party! Send an invitation to the children with the date time and instructions for selecting one of the five cookies, a blank adoption certificate, instructions on how to make a costume, and information on where to purchase The Little Cookie Bookie so they use the book while they bake the cookie with their child.

• The birthday child should select a separate cookie as their favorite flavor and this should not be on the list the other children have to pick from.

• Adoption instructions for the guests include preparing their cookie costumes in advance and filling out and coloring or decorating their adoption certificate.

• Day of party, the children should dress in their costumes and bring one dozen of their cookies to the party along with their decorated certificates.

• At the party the children will arrive with their dozen cookies, in their costume, ready for fun and games. Place their plate of cookies on the desert table.

• Enjoy the party with the fun and games and adoption certificate presentation ceremony. Each child gets to get up in front of the others let everyone guess their cookie type and show off their costume and certificate. They can tell everyone why this is their favorite type of cookie.

• Proceed to serve goodies and cookies in lieu of birthday cake

• The birthday boy/girl gets to present the awards to the winners of the games.

• A goodie bag with a mix of the leftover cookies and party favors is sent home with to each child.

Instructions for party costume:

• Buy ½ yard of a plain tan, vanilla or brown fabric.
• Place Fabric on table folded in half.
• Fold fabric over again the long way
• Using a scissors cut a neck in the fabric
• Decorate fabric with markers ( fabric mate chisel tip) to look like your cookie
• Use a belt to secure cookie tunic over clothes

    My husband and I recently published an illustrated cookie cookbook for kids we thought you’d appreciate called:

    The Kids-Did-It! Cookie Bookie: A (fun) Cookie-Baking Cookbook for Kids, Illustrated by Kids!

    It was designed as a fun, visually engaging introduction to baking for kids ages 3 to 12 with 14 tasty, easy-to-follow, and really fun-to-look-at cookie recipes, each illustrated by delightful animals or other watercolor illustrations from the Kids-Did-It! Designs® kids’ art collection. Imagine “Chocolate Chipmunks”, Peanut Butterflies”, “Moon Melts”, “Monster Mish-Mashes” or “Peppermint Pig Puffs”.

    It’s beautifully designed, “cute”, “adorable”, “easy enough that even my husband understands”, and we think it appeals to anyone looking for a fun activity or gift for kids or grand kids. Even better, each young artists earns a royalty, p l u s the recipes are delicious!
