To kick off Earth Day the children and I made cookies (really every event is made better with food, don't you think?). They were super easy and the children loved them! We used a boxed sugar cookie mix (the point was to make the cookies not make the cookies) and tinted most of the batter blue and the rest was tinted green. I rolled the blue mix into balls that the children squished flat and then they added the green "land masses." After the cookies had baked and cooled we added frosting to the top and bottom for the north and south poles. I have a surprise after school activity for the children and these will make the perfect snack.
