The flower printing activity was a success with the kids (and many of the adults as well) at May Faire today. We used liquid watercolors and special liquid watercolor stamp pads just like when we did this with the art group.
I actually made some of my own giant stamp pads with felt, a hot glue gun, and styrofoam trays, but it was a windy day and they seemed more likely to blow around so we ended up using the pads I bought from Discount School Supply. I'll save the handmade ones for another time.
Some kids stamp with the flowers and leaves, some use them like paint brushes. Some make random designs, some create specific patterns. It's so much fun to watch! And I just love how they turn out.
