Scratch Your Luck
I plan on running these coupons off onto thicker paper at school but I wanted to try it out at home to see if it works for M4MM first, so I just made a few samples at home. Besides your printed coupons, all you need for this project is some clear packing tape, just a drop or two of dish soap to mix into your acrylic paint, and a paint brush.
Place a piece of clear packing tape over the part of the coupon that you plan to paint over. You could also laminate your tickets I suppose and then paint on top of these as well.
Now all you need to do is mix a couple drops of dish soap into your acrylic paint. I wanted my paint to be gray, but you could use any color you want. Paint over the reward portion of the coupon and let dry.
Once my paint was dry I tried out my scratch-off ticket to see if it worked and it did! Think I will keep a few of these coupons around for those special times when I need to recognize a student for going above and beyond.
The tickets should be fun to have around to surprise my students with but I think I will still spoil them with some of baking every now and then too! Here is one of my favorite summer cookie recipes for you in honor of M4MM #4. The recipe only calls for four ingredients!
1 cup butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Cream first two ingredients then add:
2/3 cup corn starch
1 cup flour
Blend all 4 ingredients. Drop onto cookie sheet and bake @325 for 15-20 minutes.
1/4 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Zest of lemon
Blend icing and spread on top of cooled cookies. Melt in your mouth good!
