Place icing in a small cup or bowl for each child with a craft stick or plastic knife. Have two cookies on a firm paper plate for each child (one to take home to dad and one to eat!)

Demonstrate how to smoothly cover a cookie with icing. Children can place M&Ms around the edge of the cookie on top of the icing. With the help of an adult, write a short message such as “#1 Dad” on the cookie. (We found it hard to fit “Happy Father’s Day” on a cookie.) Cut or tear two short strips off of a Fruit Roll-Up. Cut one end of each strip to resemble a ribbon and lay the strips under the cookie. Use a marker to write “Happy Father’s Day” on the paper plate or help the child to add a personal note to dad, Grandpa or another special person in the their life.
