This afternoon we did some monoprints… I was a little leary at first, not sure how a project involving somewhat directed painting would go with a 5, 3 1/2, and 2 year old. Much to my surprise, it went very well, and all 3 kids loved it! If I wouldn’t have run out of white paper, I think they would have kept going. Each piece looks different, and you really can’t mess it up, which is perfect for us!
tempera paint (I used washable Crayola)
foam paint brushes
Tape a space on the foil & paint inside:
Draw a design with a Q-tip:
Press a piece of white paper over the painted foil:
Carefully pull up the paper to reveal your “one of a kind” print!
