What do you think?...
not my idea of dinner
Here's what you will need to make it:
store-bought or homemade sugar cookies
1 can white frosting
red licorice strings
colored icing in a squeeze tube
butter knife (for spreading)
Here's what you have to do:
Check with a grown-up before you get started.
Wash your hands.
Frost your cookies and add sprinkles for decoration. This will be the front of your suitcase, backpack, or purse. (You can make any kind of bag you want.)
Spread frosting on the bottom (the flat side) of another cookie.
Put a piece of red licorice in the frosting so it looks like a handle.
Place the decorated cookie on top and press it together to make the licorice stay on (like a cookie sandwich.)
Draw a flap or pocket shape with the squeeze tube icing and add a chocolate chip for the snap.
Be sure to share your suitcase cookies with friends before you pack them all away!
