In the underwater world where Princess Ariel comes from, sand dollars are scattered across the sandy ocean floor. Shaped like cookies and adorned with distinctive petal-shaped patterns, they’re just the sort of trinket a mermaid is apt to collect. For fun, invite your little princess to transform a batch of sugar cookies into a trove of sweet sand dollar treats.
