What You Need: This time around we tried some new things. Some of them worked, some didn't.
- mini muffin baking tin
- paper bulletin board boarder
- pipe cleaners
- veggies (she used the base ends of bok choy)
- foam letters (we glued ours on an empty squared off juice bottle)
What To Do:
- Lay out the materials so they can choose what they want to use first.
- Dip each tool in the paint and press on the paper making a print.
- You can use one tool per paper or combine to make a scene or collage.
- Let dry and hang to enjoy!
|Beansie used a Q-tip to make|
voids in his paint for a
more interesting print.
|Busy glued the pipe cleaner on a|
brie container and rolled it
across her paper to make the print.
|She also glued the string on a piece of wood|
and used it to stamp the print.
I love the happy mess that ends up on our table when the project starts to come to an end :)
Final notes: The LEGOS were my favorite print, the bulletin board boarder was Busy's favorite print, and the muffin tin is still Bean's favorite print. The letters on the bottle worked really well, inspiring them to make name plates! The string didn't work really well but the pipe cleaner did, so Busy suggested using a thicker string next time to see if that would work better. See? Unsuccessful is not a bad thing ;)
