We have a two more costumes from children’s illustrated books to share with you and If You Give a Mouse A Cookie, was absolutely a must! Though we dressed another child as the cookie, it would also be perfect for an adult or sibling. We included a cookie treat bag to complete the picture.
See below for the full tutorial!
Materials: Two pieces of large brown cardboard, ribbons, black or brown acrylic paint, pencil, box cutter, paintbrush, stapler
- Draw a circle with your pencil according to the size of your child. We did a 2′ diameter circle.
- Draw over the circle again with wavy lines so that the lines look uneven. This will make it feel more like a natural shaped looking cookie.
- Cut out two of these shapes.
- Paint uneven, brushy circles resembling chocolate chips onto the cardboard.
- Staple a ribbon from the inner side of the cardboard to the other cookie piece like a sandwich board. Repeat to the other circle.
- Wear white and you’re good to go!
To make the cookie treat bag:
Materials: two pieces of tan felt, brown or black felt, scissors, cotton ribbing 2′ in length, glue gun, template
- Cut out two pieces of an even circle (or download and print template here) to form a cookie shape out of the tan felt.
- Cut out about 7-10 pieces of black or dark brown uneven circles and glue them to the tan felt.
- Glue the ribbing (or sew) to one inside of the cookie and then to the opposite side.
- Glue the two cookies together, leaving a gap at the top of the bag big enough for little hands to go in and out.
