I love cookie cutters.  And, I’ve accumulated quite a few over the years!  My kids and I have found so many fun things to do with them (besides the traditional cookie making).  Here are my top cute cookie cutter ideas…I hope you have as much fun as we do!

Sandwich Buddies

I started picking different shapes to create sandwiches with…and this has become so popular with my kiddos, this is pretty much the only way I make sandwiches anymore.  They love showing their sandwich shapes to friends during lunch at school. Bonus – I also find that they’ll eat things they normally wouldn’t eat, if it’s in a fun shape!

Cake Topper Shapes

I found this adorable idea on Pinterest from “This Little Light of Mine.”  Place the cookie cutter on top of the cake, then use sprinkles or other candies to make your desired shape on top of your cake.  How cute is this?!

Fruit Shapes 

Cookie cutter shapes + fruit = adorable little ways to get your kids to eat something healthy.  Watermelon is a favorite!

Individual Mini Pizzas

I love to make homemade pizza. Okay, okay…Trader Joe’s pre-made pizza dough that I roll out and top myself!  It makes me feel like I’m cooking.  After you roll out your pizza dough, take your cookie cutters and make little pizza shapes – then add your sauce and cheese and toppings.  Just make sure to adjust cooking time in the oven, as the temperature may need to be adjusted due to smaller pizza sizes.

Marshmallow Shapes

Get those delicious jumbo marshmallows…take your mini cookie cutters, and make adorable little shapes for your hot chocolate, ice cream sundaes, or anything else you put marshmallows in.  YUM!

Play Dough

Cookie cutters and soft Play Doh = a fun activity that will keep little hands busy (for at least a little while).


My 6-year-old loves to draw, so cookie cutters make fun traceables.  Easy peasey!

Bonus – take them outside and trace in sidewalk chalk!

Bird Feeders

I cannot WAIT to try this!  I found this awesome idea on eighteen25 on Pinterest.  You can actually make bird feeders out of cookie cutters.  Check it out on their site – they give step-by-step instructions.  Love, love this – the perfect summer craft.

What are your favorite uses for cookie cutters?  Any fun ideas to share?

    These are seriously adorable! At Christmas time we have made homemade play dough and then added a holiday-themed cookie cutter to it to give to little ones as a gift.

    You could use this kind of cookie cutter gift for lots of holidays.
