But we didn't make cookies. We used them for this really fun Thanksgiving art project.
After stamping, set aside your paper and wash your cookie cutters thoroughly. When your stamping is dry, color in each image with crayon.
You can leave your art like this, or you can paint the background to really make the images pop. I watered down some blue paint, then we brushed it on. We kept a paper towel nearby to blot any paint that ended up on the crayon. (The wax resists the paint, so you can blot it off before it dries.) As you can see from Trevor's change of wardrobe, we did this project over two days.
You can hang these on the wall to decorate. You can add clear contact paper and use them as placemats for your Thanksgiving table. You can fold it in half to make a card to thank your host for a lovely Thanksgiving. The possibilities are endless!
