Periodic Table made up of sugar cookies
I have been recovering well from surgery. Last week I had my gall bladder removed due to gall stones - no fun at all. David and I are so blessed that both of our mother's were able to come down for a visit and help out. They were so helpful! And of course, the kids have had a blast. For the last two days David's Mom and the kids have been working on building an edible periodic table. A, B, and C are all in a Chemistry/Physics class this year and they saw the idea in their Apologia textbook so we decided to go for it.
Ingredients for the sugar cookies
3 lbs of soft butter
A, B and D were the main bakers.
Which also meant they got dibs on the beaters.
D was excited.
We baked the cookies as a sheet and scored them into squares.
The recipe made 6 dozen.
Working on frosting
F frosting cookies
All the kids helped with frosting, while A and B did all the writing.
Adding the symbols to the cookies
Starting the assembly

All of the kids that helped and G looking cute.
Not bad - I think they did a great job.
Baby G is in his "element" with F and D.
If you wanted an easier way to do this, you could use already made graham crackers (which are perfect squares) and a store bought container of icing. You could essentially achieve the same effect in less time. Just a thought. Let me know what you think!
