Our topic in Art this term is Printing.  We will be exploring different ways of using print to create patterns and pictures.


You may have some paint at home, or you can make your own using one of the recipes attached below - these paints are edible!  You could just use the primary colours (red, blue, yellow) and mix them together to make other colours.


First, try making hand print or finger print pictures.  Have some wipes or water nearby to clean hands quickly!


What have you got around the house or garden that you could use for printing?  Potatoes and other vegetables are always good - you can carve a shape into a potato and print with that.  Also sponges, bottle tops, string, leaves, small plant pots - anything really, so long as it's safe for your young person to use and you don't mind it getting paint on it!  Have a go at making pictures and patterns on paper using different objects.


Please send us photographs of your creations!
