My kids love playing with cookie cutters. You will often find cookie cutters strewn across the floor. So when I end up picking them up throughout the day, I end up turning them into an open-ended invitation to play instead. I happened to spot the box of pencil crayons nearby so I figured I would pair the cookie cutters with the pencil crayons and let the boys create some fun drawings. It's a quick and simple activity to set up, but encourages fine motor and prewriting skills, as well as creativity and imaginative play.
