Another sweet treat that can involve learning about the ocean is making starfish sugar cookies. This is a great project to get the kids involved with. Make sugar cookie mix as you would for any kind of cookie cutter cookie. Make sure that you have a star shape available. You can also use other shapes you may have available like fish or dolphins. When you have cut out the fish and they are sitting in the oven, you can take time to read and learn about different animals that live in the ocean, including starfish or sea stars, as some people call them. When the cookies are done cooking and have cooled off, take frosting and food coloring of various colors to make it bright and colorful for using on cookies. Decorate the cookies to look like starfish or fish. You can embellish them with sprinkles or other edible items that work as eyes or fins.
