This is a perfect craft for preschoolers, and the great news for parents is that it's simple to set up, and you only need a few items which you'll likely already have in your home. Kids will enjoy making an impressive looking piece of art, and they'll gain confidence doing so as they can do it all on their own with very minimal help from parents. The finished product could be hung up on display, or you could use it for special homemade wrapping paper.
This is so easy, yet effective
Time: 10 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Non toxic poster paint is perfect for little hands
Some paper cups (or you could easily use toilet rolls)
Poster paint - your choice of colours
You'll also need somewhere to put your paint, I used some scraps of card, but you could also use paper plates or paint holders.
All parents need to do is put some paint out on a plate or on some card, where kids can dip their circle shape into.
Kids can take their paper cup, and dip it into the paint and create lots of circle stamps on their paper.
A great design to encourage is where the circles all overlap themselves in a geometric fun design. This could make the prettiest wrapping paper.
