Brain Sprinkles ~ Cookies in a Jar + Printable Tag

Who doesn't need an extra dose 
of SMART every now and then, huh?

Especially when your going BACK TO SCHOOL!! 

Brain Sprinkles ~ Cookies in a Jar!

With my sweet girl, Sophia Rose,
going back to school next week and 
now entering into the THIRD GRADE (gasp!)
I had a feeling she would require
a little brain power as she transitions
from summer's lazy pace, to school's crazy race!

How about your kiddo?

I saw an idea for brain sprinkles made of 
glitter on pinterest HERE and immediately 
knew I could make it into a fun edible craft!

These were super easy. I actually took premade
snickerdoodle cookies from our local bakery and used
a wilton 1M tip to cut out the little round circles -- or you can
use a little round cookie cutter and your own cut-out
recipe if you like! I am all for FAST and FANCY!

I used the Wilton Cookie Icing in white and fun
rainbow jimmies to decorate the cookies.

I am going to give them out to the
neighbor kids too. YUM! 

Here is the Tag in JPEG for you to cut and
paste if you like!! So easy, fun and cute! 
I also have a word document for this
if you prefer, just email me.

On another note, I just had to mention that
this past weekend marked a 10 year
landmark for me with my brain tumor. 10 years
ago last week I entered into a research study at the Mayo
clinic to track patients with brain tumors. At that time
my 10 year survival was estimated to be 20%. Yikes.

Hmmmm. Guess I beat the odds.

To celebrate, I ate some of these 
brain sprinkles and prayed for another 10 years.

Life is short, add the sprinkles.

The only thing that will beat your ten year is when you celebrate your twenty year!
Ps I could use some of those brain sprinkles...

I am thankful you are here and that I met you. I'm sure there's a batch recipe of these for grannies like me that can have a senior's moment. :-)
Very nice family photo by the way.

First, this is the cutest idea. My little one is going to kindergarten next week but I may be the one needing these cookies. I am nervous!
Second, have a wonderful Happy
