Looking for an Earth Day activity that takes little to no time at all? Maybe even with the added benefit that you get to eat it at the end? Stop right here!
> 1 roll sugar cookie dough (of course you could make from scratch, we decided to make ours super easy!)
> Blue/green food coloring
> Mixing bowl
> Cookie pan
> Parchment paper
Open the roll of cookie dough and separate it into half.
Color one half of the roll blue, one half of the roll green. Use as many or as less drops of food coloring as you would like. Ours ended up being more of a pastel Earth.
Once each section is colored, go ahead and mix a little of each color together, forming in a ball. Place on cookie sheet with parchment paper. We followed the cookie roll instructions for temperature and time in the oven.
That is it! Once done cooking, you have Earth Day cookies!
It’s neat to see how each cookie looks unique dependent upon how much blue and green was put together for each. Here are a few questions I asked based upon the cookie outcome :
Which cookies had more “land” (were more green)?
Which cookies had more “ocean” (were more blue)?
Are any of the land forms in shape of a peninsula? (We had one that was!)
