Spring Flowers

Introducing printmaking with Kindergarten is always fun.  I tend to shy away from potato printing or anything with food though.  Too much food waste is never a good thing.  Why would I need to do this when children have the best printing tools already – their hands and fingers!

For this project, I had students make their flower stems with oil pastels.  Then I set up various color stations in the room.  I also included a few sponges so they could immediately clean up their hands as needed.

It’s always great to see the variety in children’s work.  Everyone has their own way of doing something, from the very organized flowers in rows to wildflowers strewn everywhere.
