Simple and Fun Activity for Kids – Painting and Printing with Kitchen Supplies:
I love to use everyday things in crafts and kid’s art projects.
This time we used ordinary kitchen supplies for painting and printing:
Empty mushroom basket
Rolled up tissue paper balls
Finding new things for this activity and discovering new ways to make interesting shapes was our favorite part. I am sure that you can find at home a lot of different materials to print and stamp with.
What you need for this project:
Ordinary every day supplies to print with
Colors (we used primary gouache colors)
Plastic or paper plates
My 3 year old daughter had a great time exploring all the possibilities of printing and stamping with different tools, making recognizable and amorphous shapes and combining colors.
I think that you can enjoy this activity with younger toddlers and older children as well.
You can easily turn it into a learning activity:
– Counting recognizable shapes on a paper: – how many stars on this paper?
– Talking with you kids about geometrical shapes – what tool you can use to make square?
– Learning about colors – by asking you kids to print red/ yellow/blue… circle
– With older kids you can talk about composition, structure, patterns, creativity and imagination; abstract and geometrical art.
This is what we made:
