Spring or Easter Decorated Cookies

My kids had the day off today, so we spent the day baking and decorating cookies.  It is always fun at the beginning but then by the end, I'm usually sick of it.  The boys didn't last quite as long as I did.  That's the way it usually goes.  They are all gung-ho and then they make two cookies and they are then done.  The sure love eating the dough though!

So, here are the cookies we made.  We traced the cookie cutter and the boys designed their cookies before they decorated them.  This gave them an idea of what to make before they started trying to make things with the icing.  Icing isn't quite as forgiving as colored pencils.  You can see below both the drawings and the cookies.  So cute!

These are my 9-year-old's eggs.  He did a pretty good job!  Of course, how Meta Knight and Warrior Skeletons have anything to do with Spring or Easter, I don't know!

These are my 7-year-old's eggs.  He was bored more quickly.  Cute though!
If you would like the recipe for the icing, it is on my Food Art Party blog ... HERE.

Have fun!

Found you on NFFriday. These are so great. We love making sugar cookies. I too am a collector of sprinkles and such. I am bad and ration out my favs to the kids when decorating. We just made some last week. I didn't post about it b/c I did back in Oct or so for Halloween. Anyway I copied your icing recipe. Can't wait to use it.

Your cookies are so sweet. I love the pastels, but the best part is that the kids were right in the middle of it all!
