I grew up in Kansas, and every January 29th when I was a child, we celebrated Kansas Day, the anniversary of the day Kansas joined the Union. There were costumes and crafts and learning Kansas facts. I have very fond memories of Kansas Day.
I live in Oregon now, and I love it here, but I like to bring a little Kansas to the party anyhow, so the kids and I made sunflower sugar cookies today. We put the dough together, then tinted it yellow. I cut out petal shapes with a knife, and they each pieced together their own flower.
