Happy Earth Day everyone! Earth Day is not a big cookie holiday by any means. I like making cookies for the more obscure holidays because there is less pressure to make new, creative cookies. I first made Earth Day cookies a few years back (check them out here). Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 and it started the social justice holidays and awareness months.
When I was a kid, between eight and twelve-years-old, I loved anything that was related to saving the Earth. I had countless books about being a good steward of the Earth. I made little posters and hung them around my neighborhood to make everyone aware of helping the Earth. In Girl Scouts, I wanted to earn every badge to do with the environment. I was even a member of KSE (Kids for Saving Earth). I pretty much LOVED the Earth.
To make these cookies, I mostly used simple, shape cookies cutters like a circle, triangle, and rectangle. The tree and owl cookie cutters are from the same place. My go-to cookie cutter shop is Truly Mad Plastics. For the Earths, I used the drawing I made for the Earth Day cookies I linked earlier. I just didn't put the white banner on this time. For the recycle symbol and whale tail, I found some free icons over here and used that as my template for piping the designs. I wanted the owl to have a similar feel to Woodsy Owl, but not looking exactly like him.
