Birthday parties mean fun food and snacks. Sure, there's the birthday cake, but you have to serve snacks and other dessert options too. What's more universally loved than cookies? Bake your own, either from scratch or from a mix, and use these fun cookie cutters to make shapes to fit your party's theme. You can decorate them or, for a fun activity, have the children decorate their own cookies.
Home-baked cookies are a great treat and very easy to prepare. Maybe you have a favorite recipe for a sugar cookie or snickerdoodle that the kids will love. If not, there are thousands of cookie recipes online for every imaginable type of cookie. And if baking from scratch is not your thing, get a cookie mix or even a tube of cookie dough.
Just roll the dough out and then use any of these cookie cutters to make fun shapes. There are butterflies and flowers--perfect for a spring or summer themed party, or for princesses or fairies. Dinosaurs and train shaped cookies are a favorite for children of all ages. And depending on how you decorate them, some can serve multiple themes. The star cookie cutter is good for a rock star theme or a space theme party.
You can decorate the cookies yourself and just serve them during snack or dessert time. But it's a party, so why not involve the children? Bake the cookies then give each child one or two to decorate. You can put out tubes of icing, chips, and sprinkles and let the kids decorate the cookies any way they want.
