This is a simple roller printing activity using a cylinder and foam shapes. If you use foam stickers, even young children can manage the activity without much help. Older children could design and cut out their own shapes from a foam sheet and glue on.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Toilet roll cardboard tubes or other cylinders e.g. crisp tube.
Rolling pin (optional)
Plastic tub
Kitchen sponge
Paint
Foam stickers (or sheet of foam to cut your own shapes)
PVA glue if making your own foam shapes
Paper to print on

Method
Stick foam stickers on to the cardboard tube (or cut out your own shapes from a sheet of foam and glue on). This makes your print roller.

Foam stickers make it easy for young kids to make the roller independently


Wet a thin kitchen sponge, squeeze out then place in a plastic tub
Squirt some paint on top of the sponge. This makes your printing pad.

Your cardboard rollers can be left to dry and used again another day
You could also try using a rolling pin. We used a silicon pin which could rotate around the handles - this added a fun and different way to roll. Our foam stickers peeled off again afterwards and the paint washed off so that the rolling pin could be used as normal again after the activity.
