Cookie Cutter Prints

Who said cookie cutters are just for cookies?  There are so many different ways to use them.  Go ahead, buy a big set of them.  I’ll give you plenty of ways to justify it!  Here’s just one!

 Prepare your area with art trays, paper, and your cookie cutters.  Use old plastic lids with a good ridge for a shallow paint tray.  When you mix your tempera paint, make it just a tad on the thicker side to minimize drips while the print is being positioned.  Pour your tempera paint into the lid.  You don’t need (or want) the paint to be very deep.  The children can press the cookie cutters into the paint and then onto their papers to transfer the desired shape!

This activity builds motor control and creativity as the children manipulate the cutters and create their own designs.
