Christmas Cookie Plate
The idea behind the kindness cookie plate is that each recipient gets to enjoy a special treat and then refill the plate and pass it on to someone else. It’s a great way to spread holiday cheer (anytime of year) without spending a lot of money. You’ll be amazed at how much cheer one little plate can spread.
They can be hard to find but it’s so simple to design and create your own to give out to your loved ones this holiday season.
How to Make a Cookie Plate
What you need:
- white plate
- paint markers
- rubbing alcohol
- cotton balls
Clean the plate thoroughly with the rubbing alcohol so the marker will adhere. Once its clean be careful not to touch it or the marker won’t stick where your fingerprints are. Prep the pens according to the package directions and use them to write on the plate.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Draw your design.
- Put plate in the oven and bake for an hour. Then shut off the oven and let it cool before taking it out. (This way you won’t accidentally touch the plate and smudge your design)
Once it’s ready fill with yummy Christmas Cookies or other fun treats and gift it to a special family. After they enjoy the treats they can gift it to someone else without having to spend a lot of time or money–which is a great to gift in itself!
