It's Thanksgiving and I have two white boxes full of sweet surprises to share with the children. Inside each box are cookies and brownies carefully layered upon pink tissue paper. We open a few of the decorated sugar cookies and do a taste test - mmmm.....delicate and crumbly like a sugar cookie should be! And the brownie has a crispy top and is thick and chocolaty! Completely delicious. But the stars of the cookie box were the sugar cookies with white icing that came with edible ink markers.

These blank palette sugar cookies are part of the Gumdrop Cookie Shops unique party kit called van Gogh Gumdrops. A kit includes a dozen sugar cookies and ten edible ink markers that the kids can use to draw on their cookies and make their own designs. At Thanksgiving my niece, nephew and son participated in this fun activity! Keegan mostly scribbled and took bites of the cookie as he colored. He is PARTICULAR about cookies, but he LOVED these. My niece was intent on covering the entire white top with every color available. And my nephew drew the solar system! So this really inspired them and each cookie was completely unique. This was such a fun activity! I think it would be a great addition to a child's birthday!

But the Gumdrop Cookie Shop has other wonderful surprises in store that would be wonderful for anniversaries, wedding proposals, wedding favors, birthdays (adults and children), marketing, wedding showers, birthday showers and more! You name the occasion, they have a kit or cookie for you!
