Making Prints

I love providing my class with different multi-sensory materials and letting them explore the possibilities. These open-ended ideas give children the opportunity to freely experiment with prints, patterns, colours, shape and form. Activities such as these promote problem solving, fine and gross motor skills and communication skills. Children need space to test and explore their creativity and as a result learn so many valuable skills and concepts. 

I find the children are always very keen to get stuck into these activities.

Until next week- happy printing.

  1. Such a fun activity. Will definitely need to find some other tools around here for the little ones to paint with! Thank you for sharing.
