ink blot prints

We had a great time doing some ink blot paintings with a group of 2- 4 year olds. I filled two clean tomato sauce bottles (excellent for storing and distributing paint) with a mixture of tempera paint powder, water and a splash of acrylic paint to make it thicker.

I then gave the children two sheets of blank paper, one to apply to paint to, and the other to put over the top to make a print.

I asked them to move their hands over the paper, then open it up carefully to see what prints they made.

They were delighted with the results. Simple printmaking!

I waited for the paintings to dry until we worked further into them..
