Easter Egg Potato Prints Supplies Needed
- Carving Tools or Crafting Knife
- Poster Paint
- Plain Paper or Construction Paper
- Grab a few potatoes, (it doesn’t matter which kind- all work great) and slice them in half. For larger eggs cut vertically and for smaller ones cut horizontally.
- Using child-friendly carving tools or a knife carve designs into the egg, similar to those on an Easter egg. (Example: polka dots, stripes, zig zags, etc.) If you are using child-friendly carving tools invite the kids to help out. What designs would they like to carve? Be sure to rinse and dry the potato after carving to remove any excess.
- Allow the children to apply paint to the potato either by brushing it on or dipping it into the paint. Like a stamp, press the potato onto construction paper.
- Mix up the colors and designs, and of course- have fun! Enjoy & Happy Crafting!
The biggest thing to remember when it comes to crafting, especially with little ones, is that imperfection and messy is best.
