Science day. I purchased this with the intent that we would make the world for our ongoing continents and oceans social studies theme I had this week, however, since today was actually dedicated to the solar system (Science Friday's), why not make that instead?
I am not a fan of the mess of sugar cookies, and generally, we only make them once a year, Christmas time. (If you don't know, Christmas time runs from the first week of October through January. Clearly, this does not prohibit cookie making for too long.)
For this child's project, I placed the cookies in orbit. Freakin' genius if you ask me. Almost as genius as using an acronym to remember the order of the planets from the sun.
MY VERY ENERGETIC MOTHER JUST SERVED US NOODLES.
My- Mercury (First and last letters also match.)
Us- Uranus (the word us at the end)
Next week, we will delve deeper into learning more about each planet, individually, as well as other parts of space.
We worked off these pages that I had the migits color first, so that we would have a color representation for each cookie when it came time to frosting them.
I make my own frosting. I use powdered sugar and water, and then, add food dye. At the end, I literally used every bit of frosting and had no waste. That was super exciting for me.
Colored! Ready to frost.
Ready to frost!
"CAN I LICK IT NOW?"
We put them on paper, and I helped them label them .
In the tin- waiting on dessert!
