We completed a cookie cake of Ukraine today in our study of the country. Last year when we started studying countries in depth we made a salt map. At the end of our study we had a salt map hanging around taking up space. So I decided to make something edible next time around. The cookie cake was fun to make. My boys had fun eating the different parts of the country too.
To make our cookie cake I spread cookie dough on a cookie sheet and baked it. I then cut the cookie cake to approximate the shape of the Ukraine. I then frosted it with some icing and the boys decorated it with green sugar to represent plains, chocolate chips to represent mountains, and blue to represent water. My 5 year old searched through our foam letters to find all the letters needed to make the word Ukraine and then they put the letters on. Of course there is a big red area on our map for Chernobyl. They both want to eat that part!
