Heart Cookie Cutter Stamping
A fast and easy way to engage children in printmaking is to use cookie cutters dipped in paint.
Our children are so creative and drawn to activities that engage them in experiences that appeal to many of the senses.
What was amazing to us when observing the children at this activity was their unique way of exploring the materials. No two pieces of art looked the same.
Some children created prints, then layered paint on top, leaving an original imprint, and then printing again on top. In the following piece you can see the original hearts faint behind the overall red colour. Gorgeous!
One child layered and layered the paint. leaving a very textured look to the paper.
This child printed on the paper and then folded it in half, creating a marbled, symmetrical look.
