Monoprint for little hands

Harry and I have been attending Scissortail School of Art for his weekly dose of culture.  I like that he can get messy in somebody else’s space and I also kinda do it out of guilt.  Addison got all sort of extra curricular activities when he was a tot.  Gymboree, library story time, play dates, weekly trips to the zoo (I wasn’t a zoo freak…we lived 15 minutes away so it was an easy way to entertain the kid).  I chalk all that up to being first born and a high maintenance SPD kid.  Poor little Harry gets trips to Target.

Last week we made monoprints.  Here are three easy steps for little hands to make their own original work of art.

Supplies:

Foil
Paint
q-tips
paper

1.  Apply paint to a piece of foil

2.  Use a q-tip to draw a design in the paint.  If you want to write something it must be written backward (right to left) and the letters need to be reversed.

3.  Place a piece of paper on top of the design.  DO NOT firmly press down on the paper; just gently tap the paper on the paint.  Peel off and hang to dry.
