Paper Carton Stamping

We had a number of extra paper cartons in the classroom and invited the children to explore stamping and painting with them. We cut the cartons into fourths and the children chose what colours of paint to use.

The children were delighted to see that the cartons left equally spaced dots on their papers when stamped! 

Many children were interested in stamping in straight lines, some exploring patterning as well!

Other children were interested in swirling and layering the paint, using the cartons as mixing tools.

This created some interesting new colours and textures on the paper.

Other children decided to layer and sweep the paint on the paper with the cartons.

This left some very unusual prints on the top of the thickly painted paper. How neat!
