This week we started "talking turkey" during our preschool time. Monday we happened to have a turkey and cheese sandwich on the schedule. I also happened to have my cookie cutters out (well, some of them anyway - my collection of cutters is well into the hundreds - which I don't often admit too since people would probably find me crazy but I love cookie cutters and will pick them up cheap at auctions and yard sales). Since my husband wonders why we have all these well catorgized, labeled and boxed cutters sitting around I figured I should find new purposes ('cause who needs to make that many cookies?).
The big cutters work great for cutting out sandwich shapes! We've done acorns, leaves and now turkeys.
Amazingly, Grant who will not eat cut up sandwiches WILL eat cookie cutter cut sandwiches.
The cutters also work well for making playdough shapes, making paper templates and shapes, sorting and organizing fun for the boys and of course for cookies - which we made about 10 dozen cut out sugar cookies this past weekend. FUN & YUM!
