Back-to-School/Teacher Cookies Decorating with Kids Spring/Summer

School’s Out for Summer

Today was our official last day of school for the year. My guys are going to be first graders! Seems impossible. I wanted to make some cookies to thank the teachers, but I was running really short on time this week.

So, I went the Kindergarten way out. I baked some simple round cookies, used Food Writer edible ink markers to draw simple pictures on them, then used red icing to “cross out” the school-related things that they would no longer deal with over the summer… and green icing to circle the things they’d welcome.

I did some personalization. The whistling lips were for the teachers who have my one guy who cannot. stop. whistling. ever.

And the highlight… was the bloody tooth. Kindergarten teachers deal with a lot of lost teeth… and two of them do not like teeth at all!

*Note: My original idea was to do cookies based on the Alice Cooper song, ‘School’s Out.’ Everyone told me it was too obscure and the teachers wouldn’t know what I was talking about. Ha! The teacher opened the cookies, and immediately started singing the song. Next year, I guess.
