This is such a simple activity that kids of all ages can enjoy, perfect for the weekend when your family is together all day. Toddlers love painting with cookie cutters and it’s is a fun way to make recognizable shapes without too much structure. My son loved doing this and I thought it was the perfect,simple way to end a great Spring Fling Week here at No Time For Flash Cards. Thanks for celebrating the changing of the seasons with us!
- Gather your materials. You will need some paper, a cookie cutter , paint and a plate.
- Spread your paint on a plate.
- Dip your cookie cutter in the paint
- Print !
- If you want, add another color and keep going!
Oh I am so using this idea next week! Thanks so much!
Cool idea! I think I’m gonna leave these items out for my kids to do with their dad today while I’m gone. Thanks
Neat idea. I have so many cookie cutters that I’ve barely used. This would be a fun project.

i did a similar activity with my lil one few days back with building blocks and he had lots of fun.
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!)
I love glitter too – I love it when other moms are brave and make the jump!
Hopping over from the UBP! What a great idea you have here!
That is going to be our next art project! thanks!!
See you around!
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!
Something differnt to do with the cookie cutters besides making cookies and playdough fun. Thanks!
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.
What a cute idea I love it. Will do with my class.
