Inside: Simple Fall Art for Toddlers Using Cookie Cutters – Keep it Easy and Fun!
Are you at that point where you are realizing that your toddlers aren’t crazy for sitting at the art table? And if they do, it’s maybe 2 minutes tops?
I’ve written about this in my Art Tips for Toddlers post.
Well, this simple fall art activity using cookie cutters is another suggestion.
Toddlers don’t have to sit.
They aren’t confined to a small piece of paper.
They can make big motions.
Toddlers love to stamp paint onto paper. We’ve explored stamping in several ways, such as when we stamped squares using blocks and circles from paper tubes. There is something about taking an object and moving it up and down, over and over again. Our busy toddlers especially have fun with these types of activities. They love the motion!
AND they will stay focused for quiet awhile. That’s quite a bonus!

What you will need:
It turned into a race track. Round and round the table they went, running the cars through the paint. The smiles!
Okay, so this will not be a Martha Stewart creation. But watching them as they worked together, running these cars around and around the table, I just smiled.
And then some hand prints.
And then car tracks.
I could have had held them back and only let them stamp with the cookie cutters. And they did have fun with that. But…. they added their own touch. And I love that.
