Equipment

Christmas cookie cutters

A large dinner plate

A roll of brown parcel paper

Scissors

Poster paint (We choose red and green.)

Instructions

  1. Cut your paper into manageable sized pieces and lay one flat on a table.
  2. Pour your chosen paint colour onto your dinner plate. It doesn’t need to fill the plate, as long as it covers a large enough area to dip your chosen cutter shape into.Dip your cookie cutter into the paint, sharp side down.
  3. Dip your cutter, sharp side down, into your paint and give it a little wiggle to make sure the edge is covered.
  4. Place your cutter onto your paper and push down firmly.Push down firmly to print.
  5. Cover your paper in your chosen design and leave to dry.
  6. When dry roll up until ready to use.When dry roll until ready to use.

My children enjoyed experimenting with different designs. You can print uniform rows or random patterns. You can use one or a combination of cutters and colours. You can paint on additional features after you’ve printed your shapes. My kiddies painted red baubles onto some of their Christmas trees and green spots onto their red present outline.

We hope you have lots of fun with this idea. It’s a great and easy way to make that gift for someone special that extra bit special.
