Stamping with the apple halves is an easy way to discuss how we can make prints using different colours and movements.
Many action words can be used to describe the stamping - jabbing, pressing, gliding, smearing, printing, and dabbing were a few of the ones we used in conversation while making our art.
We decided to use our light table to enhance the apple print experience. After covering the surface with a clear garbage bag, the kids used the same apples and paint and explored on the table.
They noticed that the light shone through the prints because of the transparency of the clear bag.
The result was a beautiful collection of apple prints that were easily cleaned up once we were finished exploring!
