Language for Little Learners


More Cookie Cutter Fun!

October 15, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Uncategorized

So, you have all of these plastic cookie cutters and you are tired of making cookies, now what? You can use the cookie cutters to do lots of activities in French, teaching the shapes and objects the cookie cutters represent, working on numbers, colors, or play vocabulary. Here are some ideas that my daughter likes to do with her cookie cutters that I turn into French learning activities:

Don’t have any cookie dough in your house and you don’t really want to make any from scratch? Make some pretend cookies with play-dough.
Trace the shapes on construction paper, cut them out and make a mobile. You can hang it up in their rooms so they can see all of the words their new French words they learned.
Look back to idea 1, but use clay. Add a little hole to the top of the shape before it dries, then paint them after they dry and you have just made some Christmas tree ornaments.
This one might be a little tricky, but you can trace them on the sidewalk with chalk as long as you have thin chalk and not the thick ones.
For older children, you can trace the shapes on felt and cut them out, sew them up and you have soft Christmas tree ornaments.

Any idea works as long as you remember to repeat the words in French while they are doing the activity. Repetition will really help your child learn and retain French.
