The fourth graders have been keeping a big secret! Over a month ago they used the free Cookiecaster website to custom draw and design a cookie cutter to give as a gift on Mother’s Day! The students came up a with wide variety of design ideas that would be perfect for mom including animals, shoes, states, and a Wonder Woman symbol. One lucky mom is even going to get a Death Star cookie cutter!
The website is very easy to use – simply draw or trace a shape and it will convert it into a 3D cookie cutter file which can be downloaded and printed.
Here is a video that was featured by Dremel that shares our process of designing and making the cookie cutters:
Our Dremel Ideabuilder printers were very busy printing out all the cookie cutters to get them ready for Mother’s Day. Check out this U of M cookie cutter being printed!
Mrs. Swanson also came into the computer lab and had the students type poems that could be given to the moms along with the cookie cutters. The poems are very clever and creative! Here’s a couple of examples of their poems.
And here are all the poems and cookie cutters, packaged and ready for delivery!
We hope mom enjoys her new cookie cutter! (Note: the plastic used to print the cookie cutters may not be food safe, so it is suggested that you wrap the cookie cutter in foil or plastic wrap when using.)
