You will need:
- Sugar cookie dough that can be rolled into shapes.
- Several colors of cookie paint (see recipe below)
- Clean paint brushes to dip in the cookie paint (one brush for each color)
What you do:
- Roll out the cookie dough into simple shapes like circles, hearts, and rectangles (some long and some short).
- Before baking, use a pizza cutter or knife to press lines on the top of the unbaked cookie to divide it into sections to represent fractions (halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, and sixths). Then let the children paint the sections of the cookies to represent fractions. For example, if the fraction they are painting is 2/3, then two of the thirds of that cookie should be painted the same color.
- If desired, sprinkle a little sugar (or add a little sugar to the paint first)
• 1/4 tsp water
• food coloring
