Totally Tots Craft

I saw this craft featured on Totally Tots and I couldn't wait to try it. It's called cookie cutter painting...basically you dip cookie cutters in paint to kinda "stamp" shapes. Since we have a heart cookie cutter I thought it would make a great Valentine's decoration for our house. (Although the thought occurred to me later that you could use any kind of cookie cutter, toy, or shape that could be dipped in paint. Endless possibilities here!)
I LOVE doing crafts, but I just can't seem to grasp the fact that my daughter is NOT ready for them. Ugh! The craft lasted about 10 seconds...I put Lorelai up on my lap, she put a finger full of paint in her mouth, and then ran off.
At least mommy got to finish the craft...it does look cute :)

You did a great job! :) I find I have to put Alex in high chair for art stuff. Otherwise, he's too busy.

Very cute! And we have the same problem fairly regularly! Usually there is some part of the craft that my daughter likes, so she may stick with that while I actually finish the craft up...

Stick with it, though - I've loved how Esme is doing more and more of the craft as she gets older, and taking initiative more and more. We did a similar craft to yours except with a toilet paper roll, and for a while afterwards, every time she saw an empty toilet paper roll, she wanted to paint!
