This is a fantastic project to explore the concept of texture with your little ones, it is super easy and fun. I found my kids loved the process of revealing the final print.
Cut out some base boards for the printing block from thick cardboard. Then cut out lots of different shape textured materials. Glue them onto your base board to make a pattern.
Our finished blocks ready for printing.
Apply paint to the different sections of your printing block, you have to work fairly quickly so the paint doesn't dry. Thick printing inks are best as they take longer to dry but poster paint will do just fine. Add a different colour to each section.
Press your printing block onto the paper to make your print. We printed a few times onto each paper to layer the patterns.
I loved the way the printing blocks turned out just as much as the final prints.
