Put some paint on a tray or a plate. Put the cookie cutter in the paint then use it to stamp shapes on to the paper. When it has dried use the paper to wrap presents for friends and family.


Fine Motor Skills - Printing supports the development of fine motor skills as children manipulate tools and materials. These skills are needed to hold a pencil for writing.

Bilateral Co-ordination – This allows children to use both sides of their bodies together in a co-ordinated way. This enables them to stabilise the paper with one hand, while writing with the other. They will use one hand to keep the paper steady, while the other hand controls the cookie cutter.
