Moon Phase Cookie Project

Boys + food + school = happy learning. I am always looking for ways to work this formula.

Most people are familiar with the moon phase cookie project where Oreo cookies are used to demonstrate the phases of the moon. In order to serve this snack, I needed to come up with a gluten and dairy free option.

Thankfully one of the fondant recipes my daughter uses in her cupcake business is gluten and dairy free.

I really love the simplicity of the marshmallow fondant recipe. It takes about 15 minutes to make.

Moon Phase Cookie Project

After she made up a batch, I used a circle cutter to make the shapes for the phases of the moon. Once I had the circles cut out, I then cut off pieces of each circle to make the crescent, quarter, and full moon phases.

Choose your favorite gluten and dairy free cookies from the store. I found the gluten free graham crackers to also be dairy free. Most of the gluten free cookies I looked at had dairy in them.

  • gluten and dairy free cookies or graham crackers
  • moon phases cut out of marshmallow fondant
  • labels of the Moon Phases

Moon Phases Labels

I had a plate of the marshmallow fondant shapes already cut out for each boy. I had them put 8 cookies or graham crackers in front of them. I then discussed each moon phase  and handed the boys their fondant to put on top of each of their cookies. I had each boy practice saying each phase of the moon. I then mixed up a set of the cookies and had each boy put them back into order and label the moon phases.
