Christmas Cookie Cutter Coloring Sheets

The little ones saw their older sisters tracing cookie cutters, to make their cardboard Christmas wreath yesterday, and wanted to trace some too. I gave them a few cookie cutters of their own, with some blank sheets of paper, pencils, and crayons, and let trace away.

The activity was so simple, I really wasn't planning on posting about it, except that it kept them busy and happy for such a long time, that I decided to go ahead and share.

Christmas crafts don't come any easier (or cheaper for that matter).

It's great to be a homeschooler.

First; I remember having some of those cookie cutters as a kid.
Second, thank you for posting this I'll have to have my kids give it a try. For them it'll actually be a challenge.

I'm always amazed at how the simplest (and usually spontaneous) activities can be the most engaging and engrossing. I think my kids would love something like this--thanks for sharing!
