How to Make Fun Red White and Blue Cookies

Fourth of July Cookies

Yesterday we made Simple Patriotic Wreath Cookies and today we’re making How to Make Fun Red White and Blue Cookies. Does it feel like July because it is! I like making these red white and blue cookies because it feels like the grill is hot and the fireworks are in the air. Let’s make a few more cookies so we can celebrate and enjoy the fireworks show!

  • Trace your hexagon cookie and make the Canton for the flag.
  • Cut the lines on the pattern so you’ll be able to draw the lines on your cookies.

  • Fold back every other line and draw your pattern on the cookies with a food-safe pen.
