The kids will gobble up this edible playdough cookie and have fun mixing the colors.
I will for warn you, this is a fun but slightly messy activity. The adult might want to be in charge of mixing the colors of cookie dough. Also I think next time I will use more contrasting colors. The kids thought it was cool to see the what happened when you rolled out the colors. This recipe also can be done in advance as sugar cookies freeze wonderfully.
Separate your favorite sugar cookie dough recipe into 3 parts. Add enough food coloring to achieve your desired color.
Randomly place pieces of the each color dough together to make one big ball.
Refrigerate at least two hours.
Gently roll out the dough to the desired thickness, about 1/4 inch. Cut out the dough shapes using cookie cutters and bake for 6 to 8 minutes or per recipe directions.
You can pick up the scraps and re-roll, just beware the colors will change slightly.
Now to add an additional touch add some fun words and serve. You could even make the hearts larger and put each child’s name on them for a school treat.
