A holiday gift for our daughter (who enjoys making real cookies), we thought you might like this too! Materials Game Pieces Wood discs (You can buy these at a craft store) Felt Seed beads Needle/thread Fabric glue Sewing marker Fabric scissors Smock Craft tray Storage bag Muslin bag Felt Cardboard Fabric glue Ribbon Safety pin Directions Game Pieces Trace around your discs onto your felt with a sewing marker. You will need at least two of each colour. (We did 4 of some of them and used different beads, so the matching was a bit more complex.) Cut a few extras for your storage bag. Cut out your circles inside the line (we did about 2-3 millimetres). This will create the icing for the cookies and leave a bit of the wooden “cookie” peeking out. (We cut around the disc and then did a trim around the circle which works too.) Sew on seed beads to look like sprinkles. (You could also glue them on with fabric glue!) Don your smock, spread out your discs on your craft tray and using your fabric glue, glue your felt icing onto your wood cookies. Allow to dry overnight. Storage Bag Insert a piece of cardboard into your storage bag (to prevent the two sides of the bag from gluing together). We then took a safety pin and clipped it to one end of our ribbon, pushing it through the lacing channel of the bag to create a more sturdy tie. Cut out some brown rounds of felt the size of your disks. Glue your icing to these and then glue your felt cookies to your bag. Allow to dry overnight. Remove your cardboard. Insert your game pieces into your bag. Instructions: Turn your cookies upside down, so that the wood is facing upwards (and that you can’t see the icing). Mix them around. Arrange them in a grid type formation. Have each player take turns flipping over 2 cookies at a time. If you find a match, you get to keep them and go again. If you do not, flip the cookies back over in the same spot, allowing the next player to go. The player with the most cookies at the end wins. As with any simple game, can you think of your own variations? We would love to hear about them! Purpose Thinking of others Developing one’s memory Safety Notes Be sure to wear a smock and use a craft tray when using fabric glue to protect one’s clothing and surfaces. Exercise care when using needles and scissors. Please like & share: Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
