    this looks cute too.

    Your block prints turned out so well, every tie I do block prints with my son he builds towers instead of painting!

    We did a similar activity for St. Patrick’s Day, using shamrock-shaped cookie cutters… and we added glitter!!! (I got brave… I love glitter!)

    My daughter is very into cookie cutters lately (ever since we had her play dough birthday party), so we’ll have to give this a try!

    A green pepper makes great flower prints as well. Just cut in horizontally across the middle and they look like a pansy print.

    What a great idea! With Christmas coming up, I think I’ll get out the holiday cutters and make some homemade wrapping paper with this idea.
