String Printing

March 23, 2012 § 3 Comments

Inspired by this, we set out to do some string printing yesterday. I decided to use the kitchen floor figuring it would be easier to mop afterwards! We had a LOT of fun 🙂

First I squeezed some paint onto plates, cut some lengths of string, and laid out the paper.

Next, Messy Boy put the string into the paint and mixed it around. (I’ve seen this done with cooked spaghetti too!) Then it was time to put the string onto the paper. I made the print while he did some hand prints!

Then it was time to reveal the picture…

And when we’d had enough of string printing I put a big piece of paper down for him to do his usual and get really messy ;o)

Of course he had to wash up after.

Clothes went straight into the washing machine afterwards!
