It’s a Teddy Bear Beach Party!!
These Summer Beach Bear Cookies were so much fun to make!! They would be a hit at your next summery, beach or pool party! The kids or grandkids would have so much fun making these on a rainy day or as an activity at a party!
I found the decorating idea here, but I didn’t care for their cookie recipe. I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe – My Grandma Appolonia’s Recipe! You can use whatever cookie recipe your prefer – or just pick up some store bought cookies! The fun is in the decorating!
