School Holiday Activities - Biscuit Decorating

For this activity you might need to add a couple of things to your grocery shopping list. Otherwise just use what you have in the pantry.

What you need:
-a pack of plain sweet biscuits (cookies) like Marie or Milk Arrowroot.
- icing sugar
- food colouring
- assorted small lollies and hundreds & thousands

1. Mix 3 small bowls with icing sugar and a drop of milk to make spreadable icing.

2. Tint icing with food colouring to create 3 different colours.

3. Place lollies and 100s&1000s in small bowls.

4. Give children a small spatula or butter knife to allow them to spread icing on the biscuit.

5. Allow them to decorate as desired.

This is great fun but be prepared - it may get very messy! My kids adore this activity, I usually save it up for when Anna has a friend to come over and play.

Variations - make cupcakes and allow kids to decorate them. Use the oval shaped milk arrowroot biscuits and decorate them to create Easter Egg biscuits.

  1. When I was a child this was a birthday party food. The biscuits, usually milk arrowroot, were spread with butter and then dunked in 100s and 1000s. A sort of upmarket fairy bread. When we played with our friends we did not play inside the house. That was only for those times when we were just family.

  2. OMG you're a genius easter egg biscuits and my kids always have the milk arrowroot biscuits in the house.
