What You'll Need:

  • Sugar Cookie Dough
  • Garlic Press (to make hair)
  • Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter
  • Rolling Pin
  • Assorted Edible Cookie Decorations (silver BB's, red hots, sprinkles, etc.)
  • Colored Egg wash Paint (egg wash and food coloring) and Brushes

Preparation:
  1. Make or buy sugar cookie dough and chill.
  2. Once chilled, roll the dough out and cut gingerbread man or doll shapes using a cookie cutter.
  3. Move the cookies to greased cookie sheets. There should be at least one cookie per child.
  4. Putting only 3 cookies on a sheet will ensure that children have enough room to work.
  5. Wrap cookie sheets with plastic wrap to keep the dough from drying out, and re-chill until ready to decorate.
  6. Set out decorations and egg wash paint with brushes on the work area.

At the Party:
  1. Divide children into groups of 3 (if you put 3 cookies on each cookie sheet).
  2. Give each group a pan of cookies to decorate.
  3. They can make hair by putting dough through a garlic press.
  4. They can brush on colors with the egg wash.
  5. When finished, bake according to directions and let children take home cooled cookies.
