If your dad loves homemade gifts, there no going wrong with decorated cookies. You can spend hours creating the perfect father’s day cookie.
Mix up multiple bowls of icing, add some coloring and start decorating fun father day cookies.
You can mix and match icing colors. Write messages of life lessons you’ve learned along the way, or draw funny pictures to make him smile. Or just write happy father’s day on some of the cookies with icing.
Decorate a Cookie With The Word Dad
If you aren’t comfortable writing with icing, then use a dad stencil. You can create a “dad” template from cardstock or you could make them stronger using Mylar sheets.
Download a template for cards. Place the cut piece on a plate for protection from the surface beneath or cut them with scissors.
This is a great way to decorate a Father’s Day cookie cake.

Presentation is Everything
If the cookies you’re making for dad (or a grandfather) are coming from little kids, here’s a cute and creative idea for packaging and delivery.
Don’t just place cookies on a plate and deliver. Most dads love to receive special art from their kids or grandkids. Don’t miss the chance to have fun with delivering these special treats.
Find a cute tin to place your Father’s day cookies in. Line the bottom with parchment paper decorated with fun drawings and artwork by the kids.
You can also have each kid write a special message, and sign their name.
Happy Father’s Day!
