DIY HOLIDAY GIFT WRAP – COOKIE CUTTER PRINTS
Cookie Cutter Painting is a great craft project for preschoolers! It is so simple and only requires a few supplies.
- White Craft Paper
- Assorted Paint Colors
- Cookie Cutters
I purchased a roll of solid white gift wrap at Dollar Tree for this project. I rolled the white paper out across the table on top of a cheap plastic table cover. I squirted an assortment of holiday colored paints onto paper plates and laid out the cookie cutters. Those also came from Dollar Tree.
Then we dipped the cookie cutters into the paints to create prints on the white paper. I didn’t worry about the paints getting mixed together. It actually created an even cuter print when more than one color ended up on the cookie cutters.
Graylie also enjoyed a little finger painting during this art project. She gave the gingerbread men little eyes and a mouth. She even did some paint mixing to create other colors. It was fun just to watch her get creative and make the project her own.
Once we were finished painting, I let the paper dry over night. Then it was ready to be turned into super cute gift wrap! This was a very inexpensive project that we were able to put to good use.
