Tracing Cookie Cutters for Fine Motor Skills


The Younger and I are working on fine motor skills, and tracing cookie cutters is an activity she loves. It’s easy to prepare for this activity and easy to clean up, so it’s one of my favorites!

Sometimes we pick a theme to follow (summer, animals, letters, etc.), and sometimes we make a mural that tells a story. Usually, however, I just give her all the cookie cutters and let her imagination run free. I love watching her arrange things and listening to her tell me what each cookie cutter means to her and why she’s chosen to use it. It’s a different story every time, and it’s a fun glimpse into where her mind is  :-)
