How one can make Potato Print Walrus greeting playing cards – Step by Step directions

Potato printing is a extremely enjoyable mission to do with youngsters of all ages. However preschoolers particularly love working with them. An ideal alternative to get caught in and get messy!

A prime tip: generally the potato “sucks” onto the paper and will be tough to elevate off. Or generally preschoolers with sensory points could not like the texture of the paint… you need to use a fork as a “deal with” to your potato to make issues simpler!

The primary two steps are extra imporant than you assume.. so please learn on rigorously:

1 Minimize the Potato with a pointy knife

Obvioulsy, it’s important to lower the potato! Ha. And it’s tempting to let your preschooler give this in the past – particularly if you happen to subscribe to the college or studying by doing. However I like to recommend you chop the potato in half FOR your kindergartners or preschoolers. You need to get a easy a floor as doable, in order that the potato print, prints evenly! That is greatest achieved with a pointy knife! So please, do lower the potato in half in your youngsters. Size methods for an grownup walrus potato. And throughout its width for a child walrus potato!

2 Pat your potato dry

Once more, this a not so apparent step and many individuals typically skip it! However a dry potato will maintain the paint higher and in addition print higher! So do dry it on an artwork material or a chunk of kitchen paper towel first.

3 Load your potato with Walrus colored paint

We like including paint to our potato with a paint brush… however you’ll be able to simply add paint to a dish or plate and dip the potato in.

4 Make your walrus physique potato print

Time to lastly get printing! Make your walrus physique potato print. Press down rigorously along with your fingers to get an excellent print throughout. You possibly can print twice if you want!

5 Add your fingerprint Walrus Options

I really like that this preschooler walrus artwork mission additionally incorporates some fingerprinting. Nice sensory enjoyable, but additionally a stunning approach to create some fingerprint souvenir artwork.

You will have to make two fingerprints on the base of the potato walrus physique along with your fingers. These are the walrus’s flippers.

Add slightly white paint to your brown, to make a lighter brown/ beige color, for the walrus’s face. Make two extra fingerprints.

Now let your walrus dry absolutely!

6 Add walrus facial options with markers

Now it’s time for some walrus eyes, a nostril and a few particulars to the walrus toes!

7 Walrus tusks made out of scraps of paper

The walrus tusks are merely paper triangles lower out from scrap items of paper and glued in place with a glue stick!
