How to create colouring page cookies

I designed these cookies for my children who found decorating with icing and a piping bag difficult to manage. They much preferred decorating cookies with markers but found it tricky to line-up the design on the cookie shape, with this technique they could simply colour within the lines I had created while still feeling like they had done it alone.

These cookies were coloured using edible colour markers. I used water and a paintbrush to blend the colours.
