With a basket full of soft potatoes and some bored children on a rainy day I decided to go a bit old school and make some potato print pictures with them.
I can’t remember any of mine coming home with any potato printed items and I cant recall doing it myself since I was at school.
It’s such an easy craft activity that requires very little equipment or preparation.
She created mainly raised shapes. Squares, triangles, simple lines and a little house. There was also a heart that she dug into the potato thus using the outside of the potato to create the picture instead.
Once the shapes had been made we rolled a large piece of paper across the table and put some blobs of paint onto some paper plates and then left them to get creating.
It quickly turned into hand a finger painting too, but it’s great to give them free reign to produce whatever they like.
What crafts do you remember from your childhood?
