After they had printed with paints onto brightly coloured tissue papers, we left them to dry then snipped the sheets into random shapes. They then glued these directly onto the front of folded white card. Finished!
We also printed some Lego patterns straight onto the front of some mini-sized cards for some variety. These would look really striking in black on white or neon colours on black!
What they are learning as they play:
creative: making prints, overlapping, colour mixing, cutting and tearing, creating collage
maths: recognising and naming circles, creating patterns, counting shapes, rotating and overlapping shapes
motor skills: grasping and careful printing with blocks, hand:eye coordination, cutting with scissors, tearing using two hands, sticking
