Paper Cookies A Preschool Food Craft

My kids are so cute! They always want to help in the kitchen! When I do dishes, my daughter Harper will push a chair into the kitchen and climb up to the sink. She will say "I can do this Mom!" or she will want to help make coffee and push all of the buttons. If there is cooking involved my son dashes in, ready to help! I welcome their company in the kitchen 90% of the time. But, as any mom will tell you, there are times when having small kids in the kitchen is not the best idea.

On those rare times, I feel bad to deny their help, so I came up with a few fun food crafts that the kids can make while I am occupied with a complicated recipe.  The first one we did as you might recall was a pizza craft. The kids had so much fun making pizzas! We have made several of these since the post!

Tonight I was frying chicken, a rare thing that I admit, I am not so great at. I didn't want the kids to get splashed with hot oil so I entertained them with a paper cookie craft. It was a huge hit!

This was incredibly easy for the kids to make, the materials were super simple making preparation a breeze for me, and best of all- this craft does not require anything special. Seriously, you are going to have the supplies in your house!

Materials Needed to Make Paper Cookies

Several Brown Paper Bags or brown or yellow construction paper
A Paper Plate


To begin, cut circle shapes in the brown bags or construction paper as your cookie base.
{I cut about 30 circles at a time so that we can do this craft multiple times}.

Place as many circle cookie shapes as you like on the paper plate.
Drizzle glue onto the circle 'cookies'
Decorate with sprinkles
Allow to dry.

This was so fun for the kids! We will be making these again soon I am sure! Do you like to do paper crafts with your kids? I would love to hear about your favorites!


  1. This is such a cute, simple idea. The best part of cookie decorating is the sprinkles anyway, right?

  2. This is really cute. My preschool class will love this! So much of preschool is imagination. They are going to want me to "eat" each and every one of those pretend cookies! LOL And I will!

  3. What a great way to keep the kiddos occupied doing something similar, but out of the way! My son's beginning to get to the stage where he wants to help out all the time too. He's great at putting things in the trash. :)

  4. Awesome idea! My daughter always wants to help as well, but I'm short on time and find that I can't get anything done. This is a great way to keep her entertained. I'm pinning and tweeting this! <3 Happy Tuesday!

  5. What a cute idea! So fun! Thanks for linking up to Merry Monday! Sharing on my kids & Tweens Pinterest Board! Have a great week!
