Potato Printing

Today, with some potatoes left over from Sunday lunch I got the girls to do some printing with them. P was happy with just half a potato but G and E wanted shapes. I used a biscuit cutter for a basic shape and with a knife I cut away the parts of the potato that fell outside the shape. We then pressed the potato in to the paint. (To change colours, rinse the potato in running water and pat dry if you wish.)
G enjoyed making patterns and mixing the paints into new colours.
E was able to follow my pattern and start one of own.
P enjoyed moving the potato round the paper and seeing what happened.
