We used plastic strawberry baskets to make some really interesting prints this week. The children quickly realized that if there was too much paint on the basket bottom, it would not make a clear print. Problem-solving how to get just enough paint on the basket was an interesting task for many children.
This was also a very meaningful activity as it allowed us to recycle these baskets into art tools. We are hoping to collect enough baskets so that we can add them to our building center for next year. If you have any at home, please consider donating them to our program. Thank you!
