Day of the Dead Cookie Cutters

We recently walked into one of our favorite crafty store, Paper Source, and I found these fantastic Day of the Dead Cookie Cutters. My kids agreed that we should test them out, so we brought them home and put them to work with our play dough.

My little one and I rolled out some of our famous pumpkin pie playdough. Well, I don’t know if it’s famous, but it smells great and it’s a must-have for the Fall season.

Then she arranged the cutters to make them all fit. With the shapes all cut out, the fun part is flipping the cutters over to make the stamped skeleton impression.

Once they were all stamped and cut I suggested that we squish them all up and start all over again, but she was so proud of her creations and would hear of it. So we packed them all up neatly in our playdough container where they’ll be waiting for us next time the dough comes out.
