Cardboard Cookie Shop

Pretend bakeshop is always such a hit in our house. Sometimes we use play dough and sometimes we use felt, but, today, cardboard and foam stickers made the most beautiful cookies in our bakery.

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    To start this craft, I first cut rounds of different sizes out of cardboard to become our cookies. Next, I cut smaller, wavy rounds from the foam sheets to become the frosting.

  • Step 2

    I called the kids down and handed off their baking supplies. My two-year-old was very careful to place each sprinkle and bit of cookie decor in the right spot.

  • Step 3

    My five-year-old made cookie faces and patterns. She served us all cookies and requested a baking sheet to line them up on.

    This was a fun activity that got my children working together for over an hour. I love projects that both ages can enjoy!
