April 28, 2020: Today's Activity!
\ APRIL 28, 2020
This simple activity is fun for everyone from toddlers to adults and offers infinite creative possibilities! All you need is paper, paint, and objects around the house to print and stamp with. Start simple with a cardboard toilet paper or paper towel tube: dip the end of the tube in paint and use it to make circular stamps on your paper! Next, get creative by bending the tube to make shapes like a heart, triangle, or star. Now that you've got the hang of it, you can try stamping with anything you're okay with getting paint on! We recommend old sponges, corks, plastic cutlery, hands and feet, leaves and bark, cookie cutters, fly swatters, potato mashers, and foods (bell peppers or apples cut in half, sticks of celery, broccoli tops, and lots of other foods can make fun stamps!) as just a few options to get you started. You can also try can painting on to a ziploc bag or plastic wrap with a paintbrush or q-tip and then placing the paper on top of the plastic and pressing down to create a monoprint! While acrylic or tempera/kids paint will work best, you can also experiment with watercolor or try [this easy DIY paint](https://happymoneysaver.com/homemade-kids-paint-3-simple-ingredients/) made with flour, water, and food coloring.
