Every season we have had fun using the cookie cutters to do watercolor paintings. We are excited that we have reached December and are into the Christmas Season at our house. We have loads of Christmas books that we really love to read.
One of our favorites is Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree. My youngest pointed out her favorite part is how many Christmas trees are made from one tree. It is fun to see how they make that one tree work for them.
This is a great fine motor activity for kids to do. They get to paint and use their fingers to hold the cookie cutter in place while they do the activity. I really like that they can be flexible how they want to place the different trees.
We pulled out our cookies cutters and had lots of fun making Christmas trees.
My youngest just loves this activity. She gets to pick her colors and where the trees go. She has really improved her painting and fine motor skills while doing this. You hold the cookie cutter in place while you paint in the area.
While she paints we talk about the colors of green that she picked. She used all the colors. She loved that she had several choices. Plus you can compare the colors after the project is done. It is also fun to see how she changes her hold as she makes each tree.
Here is a look at the finished trees:
