Potato Prints





Our plan this afternoon is to do some potato prints.  I loved doing this when I was little.  All you need to do is cut a potato in half, mark on whatever shape you would like to print, and carefully cut around it so the bit you want to print with stands out.  The potatoes then need to be dried off with some kitchen paper or a cloth so they will soak up the paint.  As you can see from my bowl, my husband enjoyed creating the potato stamps just a little too much 😉 I’ve also got a tablecloth to put down to get clean up simple.  This could go very well, and if it does I shall pass on some artwork to grandparents.  If it doesn’t……………………..well we will still have had fun in the process 😀
