Autumn-Inspired Cookie-Cutters Play Dough Craft

Autumn Inspired Home-Made Play Dough

Who said that cookie-cutters are just for baking? How about creating an Autumn-Inspired Cookie-Cutters Play Dough Craft with treasures you can find during nature walks? Think of collecting leaves, pine cones, and acorns. And, add some corn kernels for an additional fine motor twist!

Children then enjoyed making leaves by layering play dough and drawing midribs and veins. This nature-inspired craft was a true nature-inspired invitation to create!

The sky is the limit as to ways your little one might choose what to create with play dough! You can add natural scents using fruit tea or essential oil added to the dough. You can offer to hide items inside play dough and then reveal the finds! Most importantly, let them have FUN while they play creatively!
