Here’s a simple and fun idea if you’re on room parent duty for your kids’ Valentine’s Day party. I did this last year for my son’s Kindergarten class, and it was a big hit! Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 tubs of white icing
- food coloring
- mini cupcake liners
- several different colors of sprinkles
- plastic knives or spoons for spreading the icing
- 1 heart-shaped sugar cookie per student
Use the food coloring to color 1/2 of the icing pink. Use a small cookie scoop to portion out individual servings of the icing into the mini cupcake liners. Put a small portion of the sprinkles in cupcake liners too. This makes them easy to pass out during the class party. I was able to fit all my icings and sprinkles in a 9×13 pan, which made them easy to transport to school.
This project doubled as both a craft and snack, and the kids loved being able to choose their own icing and sprinkle colors (not to mention licking the spoon!)
We have two delicious recipes for cut-out sugar cookies: check out Megan’s Sour Cream Sugar Cookies and Sara’s Favorite Cut-Out Cookies. I recommend you roll the cookies fairly thick so they’re less likely to break as the kids work their magic!
