One of our kid Activities for Advent
I am trying some new crafts in preparation for my advent activities with my kids. Here is one and it is super easy and relatively inexpensive. Cookie cutter ornaments. I was searching my Pinterest boards and came across the Martha Stewart cookie cutter ideas and instructions.
I loved the chevron printed paper. I purchased a packet of rustic Christmas paper packs which included some chevron printed paper seen here from Craft Warehouse our local craft store.
I then purchased a few cookie cutters in various colors. I had thought I would spray paint them a shiny gold or silver for my tree but for the purposes of the kids advent craft activity I left the colors as is.
I traced the outside of the cookie cutter and cut out the shapes. On a random note you could photo copy photographs on cardstock and do this activity as well. Next I used Elmer's white glue an added glue around the edge finally placing the cookie cutter on top. I felt I needed some weight on top while it was drying and it worked well.
Next I took some bakers twine I had handy and put a dab of hot glue to the back and placed the twine in it to act as a hanging apparatus. Super easy and something I think depending on the age of your kiddos easily done. They could do all or parts and you could have all or parts prepped before hand if you so chose.
