Decorate sugar cookies for a homeless shelter

Use your creativity and test your baking skills by making and then decorating sugar cookies for a local homeless shelter.

Supplies needed but not limited to: sugar cookie dough, oven, cookie sheet, frosting, sprinkles, plastic knifes, gloves, wax paper, Ziploc bags.

This project encourages students to think about what other people’s needs may be and what would make other people happy. They will take time to look into which local homeless shelters there are and see which shelter they feel as though would be their best fit and learn more about that shelter. Then they will bake and decorate the cookies in a way to portray their compassion for the homeless population and even have the opportunity to deliver it to the shelter to see the happiness that it brings them.
