It was right before we left for our last vacation of the summer that I thought of the idea for a back to school version of my tic-tac-toe cookie obsession. I think I’ve done five different themes so far…maybe six…
Even though I am in denial I will have to set an alarm and drag the kids out of bed to get ready in the morning, I must be subconsciously preparing myself. I know there are some of you that have already begun, but I’m not rushing our after Labor Day start of the new year.
To make the kids transition a bit easier too, I figured a cookie game might help shift their mindset. A little anyway. And speaking of little, here are the mini pieces I chose for my back to school tic-tac-toe set…
I decided on these five designs and worked with what cookie cutters I had. Just a note that I did trim a small part off of the square to make the notebook paper more rectangular. The pencil was made using a mini holly leaf with the sides trimmed like so:
Mini cookies can be tedious to make, but turn out so darn cute. Especially with a tiny smiley face. I can never resist the face!

Not so hard, right? An “A+” for you!
We’ve only got 6 days left to enjoy the city pool before they close for the season, so I’ve kept this post short and sweet and full of photos.
Priorities, you know.
Enjoy the last of the summer, if you’re not in your desks yet, and wishing you all a stellar school year!
