These Dinosaur Footprint Cookies are such a fun edible treat for all your little dinosaur lovers. Your kids will love pressing the Dinosaur foot into their cookies.
My boys have loved dinosaurs since their little voices were able to make a “big, scarey roar.” 🙂 There is just something about Dinosaurs that attract the adventurous side in all of us and I just love watching my boys pretend. My daughter Addy will follow her brothers around roaring and stomping with the best of them. These dinosaur footprint cookies are so simple and such a fun activity for the kids! You can use a store bought sugar cookie for this recipe but I highly recommend you try our sugar cookie recipe. They are delicious, soft, and full of flavor- the nutmeg is the secret ingredient! If you don’t like nutmeg you can swap it out for cinnamon. We used both nutmeg and cinnamon this time around.
Once you roll out your sugar cookie dough your children are ready to play. My son loved deciding what dinosaur foot he wanted to use and pushing it into the dough. Make sure your child doesn’t push the dinosaur foot through the bottom of the cookie or it will create a hole.
We thought it would be fun to make some cookies with some “muddy” footprints. To achieve that look we simple added a touch of water to some cinnamon and then dipped our dinosaur foot in the cinnamon mixture before pressing the foot into the dough.
These dinosaur footprint cookies were the perfect way to celebrate one of Amazon’s newest Original Kid Series, Dino Dana. Dino Dana, which follows the Emmy Award Winning series, Dino Dan, takes preschoolers on a whole new level of dinosaur adventures with two sisters and a new set of Dinosaurs. You can watch the fun trailer here!
We baked the cookies according to our recipe and put some in a baggie for his buddies. These were one of my sons favorite cookies to make and the fact that we don’t need icing for this recipe makes this cooking making session much less messy which is always a win in my book 🙂
