Easy Dinosaur Cookies

Here at Bonny Babes we love to see kids getting into the kitchen and what better way to encourage them than with some dinosaur footprint or fossil cookies. You could make yours with the dinosaur foot as pictured or even use small toy dinosaurs to push in and make cookies that look like dinosaur fossils. These are also perfect for a dino themed birthday party!
