Not Just For Cookies Any More – Fun WIth Cookie Cutters


I am often amazed when I see an idea either on Pinterest or by a fellow blogger that is so simple & genius that I think, “Wow, why didn’t I think of that?” Yesterday, my amazement was directed at my brother-in-law.

My brother-in-law, Pete was babysitting for his favorite niece yesterday. When I came home they were playing in the living room on the coffee table.

For Christmas, I received a 101 piece box of cookie cutters from my mama-in-law. I can not even begin to tell you how excited I was. The box had cutters for every holiday, shapes, numbers & letters, etc.. Our coffee table was covered in my new cutters. Mai saw the box & wanted to play with them, so Uncle Pete obliged & together they played.

Mai has recently discovered her love for Play Doh. I noticed on the table there were shapes formed out of the Play Doh using my cookie cutters. I was shocked that I never thought of doing this. It is such a simple idea. I am quite certain many of you mommy’s out there have already done this, but it never donned on me. My little baker enjoyed this. We used her small toy rolling pin to roll out the dough. She helped press out the shapes herself.

Mai & I wanted to continue our fun with our new toys. Here are some other fun ideas.

Tracing shapes



Paint Stamping




Cookies aren’t the only food that should have all the fun. Cutters can be used on French toast, pancakes, sandwiches & fruit. Have fun with it. Your kiddos will thank you for it.

  1. All great ideas, but will say Playdough and my girls not a good mix. The last time I let them play with it, they made a huge mess and I used the experience to contribute in the book, The Mother of All Meltdowns. But Mai does look happy and glad cookie cutter worked so well for you on this one 🙂

  2. we have an “art” cookie cutter box and a “cookie” cookie cutter box- don’t want to mix those up 🙂

  3. I let my kids use cookie cutters with play doh all the time! They have a blast!

    Such a cute idea! I think I have the same set of cookie cutters and love them. I’ve heard of using other foods but play dough is a genius idea. Isn’t it funny how we think I coulda thought of that! After we’ve seen some of these ideas.

    My mom took my son to a playgroup last week, and he came home with a goodie bag filled with play doh and some cookie cutters. “Genius!” I thought! Such a great idea.

I love the idea of tracing in the cookie cutters. Seriously, we are going this (I’m sure the children will love getting out of doing history). Haha!
