My girls just love to do painting activities. We certainly have loved painting with cookie cutters! They are fun and easy to use for many different ages.
We have a winter theme at our house. Snowflakes have always been a great theme for us during the winter. Sometimes we get huge amounts of snow and other times we don’t.
Today we have a simple watercolor painting of snowflakes! Simple and easy to do and can be changed up so many different ways.
We have done several cookie cutter painting activities over the years. This was one my girls asked for. it is one of our favorite types of process art. No one makes or does the same thing.
They also picked out a book that we read. It is one of our wintertime favorites: No Two Alike. The book is about how now two things are alike. It shows you many different examples.
What you need for this activity:
Painting Using Cookie Cutters
There are several sizes of snowflake cookie cutters to pick from. We each picked out own. We decided to stick to the blues and purple colors.
You place the cookie cutter on the paper and use one hand to hold it. The second hand you get paint on the brush and paint inside the cookie cutter.
After you have finished the cookie cutter part you can always add more decorations or colors! The ways to paint are endless!
One fun thing to do is overlap the snowflakes. Because we are using watercolors the snowflakes can dry pretty fast. This allows you to put big on small and overlap corners of snowflakes.
Here is a look at our final pictures. You can see that even with using the same cookie cutters everyone’s looks different!
