Step Three: Sprinkle the counter with flour and roll out your dough. Dip cookie cutters in flour and cut geometric shapes out of the dough. For special gem-shaped cookies, use  the printable template as a cutting guide by placing it over dough and cutting around it with a sharp knife (parents should do this step!).

Step Four: Bake according to directions on the package. Allow to cool completely.

Step Five: Once cool, apply a coat of royal icing. Before icing sets, sprinkle gently with edible glitter or generously with sanding sugar.

Step Six: Here’s the fun part for your little one: Experiment with color mixing by using pink sanding sugar over blue royal icing and vice versa. Once base coat is set, pipe buttercream frosting gem details on with icing pens! Use the photos for reference, or get creative on your own.

Boom Zahramay! Enjoy while watching the season premiere of Shimmer and Shine!
