Make Cookie Bouquets with Your Kids!

by Kim on February 12, 2009

Gather the kiddos around the kitchen table and be ready for a fun time. The best part is that your kids will love being a part of the process and will be amazed at what they quickly created. Place finished stems in a vase or even wrap in clear giftwrap for a great “presentation” to someone you love.

Materials Needed:

  • Fudge-striped cookies (regular and/or mini size)
  • Wooden skewers (with parent supervision) ;)
  • Gumdrops or heart-shaped gummy candy
  • Green ribbon
  • Clear vase or clear giftwrap

These steps are so easy, I think we’ll let the pictures
“do the talking!”  Let’s get started!

Step 1:

Step 2:                      �
Step 3:

 

Step 4:

Step 5: Wa-lah! Finished! Don’t you think the kids will have a blast making these with you?

Extra Tip:  Our “stems” were too short for the length of the vase. We solved the problem real quick by simply adding more gumdrops to the bottom — of course, it also adds to the cuteness factor, too! :)

very cute- course- at my house they wouldn’t make it onto the skewers- my kids love Grasshopper cookies!

Oh how cute! What a totally fun idea. I’m not fond of lots of sugar (in the candy) but I think it would be great to make these with colorful dried fruit, too!

What a super idea!
I was just in panic mode as to what to the kids could give to family for Valentines Day this weekend (I’m not one to plan too far ahead… and these will be perfect.
Thank you.

This is SO cute, and SO easy. Cheaper than real flowers, and a lot yummier. :-)

Okay, so…my three kiddos and I had a blast making these this afternoon! We learned a few things in the process: I thought “Dots” would be a good alternative to gum drops…not so. Way too hard for little hands to push that skewer through. You might want to skip that notion if you were thinking it! But, we did use them in the bottoms of our vases for a colorful filler. Also, we discovered that Nabisco has a new Oreo version called Fudge Rings. They are shaped just like the Fudge Striped cookies, but are chocolate with white stripes and add some nice variety to the vase. My chidlers are excited to deliver these to a few friends tomorrow for Valentine’s Day. Thanks, Kim! Great and fun activity!

Great idea. You think my mom will make them with me? easier than making cookies or even buying the expensive cookies. Dollar tree has these cookies and gummies and wonder what one can use instead of the stick? Stick is kinda pointy and not edible? Licorice to limp, hmmm maybe a straw can use with a coco pack later, maybe. golly gee, wilie might know or wilmie better to keep it to us girls. This is fun thinkin g of bouquets. Can you make me one I need some happiness about now–thanks for your website. I am drawing again. Tootle. I called my mom see ya.
