Circle Printing

A great simple activity which encompasses so much learning for your little artist - shapes, objects, colours, textures, cause and effect... All you need is paper, some paints, anything circular to print with and of course lots of enthusiasm. I simply showed Jake that he had to dip the printing object into the paint and then onto the paper, he got it in seconds!

A toilet roll gives lovely circular outlines
Bubble wrap around a block makes cute little circles
Jake really interested in all the shapes and colours

Final touches...


Two fantastic paintings! Jake is very proud of his 'circle pictures'! 

During the activity he was telling me what all the colours were and asking for the different printing objects, discovering what they all did and mixing them with different colours. Lots of fun.
