Alexander Graham Bell Day (Mar. 7!)
This cookie has the first phrase ever uttered on a telephone on it!
I was looking up things on Pinterest that could have an Alexander Graham Bell theme and learned this cool fact. There aren't a lot of Alexander Graham Bell themed desserts on there (haha.), but there are a lot of teaching materials. I thought about drawing an old time phone, but I wasn't sure how that would come out, so I decided to paint and write this fun fact on the cookie.
See more info below about Alexander Graham Bell Day.
I used the same sugar cookie and non-Royal Icing Icing that I have used before. I also used an edible marker to write part of the sentence.
So whenever you talk on the phone, don't forget about Alexander Graham Bell and the invention of the telephone.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
What is Alexander Graham Bell Day?
"The unofficial holiday recognizes the day in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell was granted a patent for the technology that would later become the telephone and changed the world of communications.
On March 7, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell was granted a patent for “transmitting vocal or other sounds telegraphically.” Three days later, on March 10, Bell uttered the famous words "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you" into a transmitter. His assistant, Thomas Watson, who was in the next room, heard the words clearly and thus, the first telephone was created.
In commemoration of the day he was granted the patent, Bell’s fans around the world celebrate March 7 as Alexander Graham Bell Day. It is a day recognized by an official act of the legislature in Nova Scotia, Canada."
