The boys like to get messy with paints – when we can, it’s more fun for all of us to do it outdoors. Potato Printing is always a fun way to make marks and really get INTO the paint! Today the boys had a new take on it and started to tell a story while they stamped. It was really cool to listen to them create the story together while they stamped houses and painted roads to make a town!
This is their Potato Printing Story -
There was a boy who lived in a town with lots of roads. This boy had SO MANY cats. One day a ghost came and the ghost turned out to be friendly and really LOVE cats.
We used tacks to keep our paper from blowing away and washable watercolor paints so the next rain will carry off any messes. Next time I think I will throw down an old sheet because the paint brushes kept rolling through the cracks in the deck – oops.
