I tested them on some of my grandchildren and some of my neighbor boys.  They all gave them a thumbs up, along with a few suggestions.

When I first started rolling out this dough, it looked like play-dough to me and I started to call them Play-dough Cookies , but figured the children may be afraid to make eat them.

Combine the ingredients for the dough, roll into a ball.

Love this dough. It reminds me of the spritz cookies for the cookie press.  Not too sweet.

Gently, start rolling the ropes together, twisting them to form one long log.  I rolled it on my cutting board. Press ends to keep the log even.

Remove the log and unroll paper.

Pour colored sugars, sparkles, or sprinkles onto a plate.
Make sure to have straight lines of the same colored sugars etc.

 Slice into 1/4 inch slices. I cut some of mine too thick and the children did not like them as well.
