Christmas Cards... Printmaking

There's nothing better than homemade Christmas cards.  Today in Kindergarten, we made cards for our friends and family members.  Since this was the first time I did printmaking with this group of friends, I decided to have them do snowmen for their first print and then I let them do another one of their choice.  To prep for this activity, I cut the bottom of styrofoam to go containers, or you can use plates.

Step 1:  Have students draw on the styrofoam with a pencil.  It is important to press hard and use thick lines.

Step 2: Roll paint on styrofoam.

Step 3:
Flip on top of construction paper and apply pressure...
Step 4:
Make as many prints as you need.  Re ink as you go along.

Happy Holidays...
