This summer, we actually were able to do a lot more mini-trips with the KIDS. Anyone with kids knows how much planning and patience it takes to go on any trips big or small. For us, going to the lake was something the kids absolutely LOVED to do! What better way to celebrate summer than with some bright FISHY SUMMER sugar cookies!
Even the kids had a BLAST designing their own FISH BOWLS and fish cookies! ha!
For these “fishy summer” cookies, I used a fish cookie cutter, a mayonaise lid for some small circles, and an apple cookie cutter to make the fish bowls (trim off the apple stem). We used some big sprinkle shapes on the bottom of the fish bowl to look like pebbles. The kids had fun creating!
Here are the cookie dough shapes:
Now that they are OUTLINED, we are ready to FLOOD the cookies. The kids are a great help with this part!
After allowing them to dry for several hours (overnight is best), we can add the final details to the cookies! This is when the cookies really get fun and you end up with a yummy, fishy cookies to gobble for the summer-time lake fun!
Happy summer all!
