Personalized fortune cookies make a fun and unusual party favor for:
~~ Baby and Wedding Showers: All the guests could write messages to include in a cookie. Then the parents or bride and groom could open them up to read aloud. Or they could save them to read at the baby's first birthday or on their first wedding anniversary.
~~ An Activity at a Kids' Birthday Party: The fortunes could be already printed or let the kids write their own. Then they could insert them into their own cookies.
~~ Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, etc: Use food color to dye the cookies red and green.
~~ Graduation and Retirement Parties: Write congratulation and best wishes messages.
When you make your own fortune cookies, you can change the vanilla flavoring to another flavor of your choice, use food coloring to change their color, and even dip them in chocolate, caramel, or other coatings.
Many times people get together to make cookies for the holidays. How about getting together to make fortune cookies?
