Is it really back to school time? I saw the school supplies section all set up at Target last week, so I guess it’s true! These “You’re one smart cookie” cookie treats are perfect for a back to school party or even a lunchbox surprise. They would also be super cute for teachers to hand out to kids at meet the teacher night. Y’all know I love my cheesy sayings, so expect a few more before school starts! This “I’m so glad we’re in the same school” free printable would also be perfect for back to school. Just add goldfish or Swedish Fish, yum!
Here’s what you need to make this back to school treat
- Ziplock bags
- Tate’s cookies (Obviously, any chocolate chip cookie works, but Tate’s are amazing!)
- Sharpie marker
- Self adhesive googly eyes

Step 2- Print
Getting something printed is always the hardest part for me! My printer doesn’t work right, I’m out of ink, jammed paper… more often than not I end up at Staples to print. Once you get the free “You’re on smart cookie” printed. Also, I recommend printing these on card stock.
Step 3- Cut & doodle
Use scissors to cut around the dotted lines. Then, have your child write their name on the back of the bag topper. It’s much easier to write on when the topper is not attached to the bag. Next, doodle on the glasses, smile, and add google eyes! I found it was a lot easier to draw the glasses on the cookie when the plastic bag is empty. Stick the cookie in the bag to get a measurement, stick the googly eyes on the bag, and then take the cookie out to draw the glasses on the Ziplock. Don’t forget the smile!
Step 4- Attach the back to school treat topper
Fill the zip lock bag with 1 chocolate chip cookie. Then, fold the bag topper over the plastic bag and use a stapler to attach.
You can also use this idea on a bag of cookies for your teacher! Check out this back to school treat for teachers here.
When do your kids start school? Mine don’t go back until the first week of September. Enjoy the last month of summer, y’all!
