Print Making

Styrofoam meat trays re-purposed.

Today we began making prints.  The children really enjoyed this art~full process. 
The trick was getting them to stop before repositioning the stamps.  If their print didn't look as they thought it should when they lifted the stamp the first time, they would press it down again and the result would be smudges and some sad faces.  This process is much like Montessori practical life pouring exercises.  Stopping when the glass is full, not when the pitcher is empty. It is often through our mistakes we learn. 

The prints came out wonderfully.
