Picture of Easy Lino Block Prints for Kids using Styrofoam!
Easy Block Printing or Lino printing for kids!
Who am I kidding?  I loved this too!

I did Linocut printing in art class way back in the day...and wanted to
find an easy and inexpensive way to give my own kids that experience.

Styrofoam saved the day.

Thanks! The kids are always on my supply list! :) It's amazing how simple and mundane things in life become so much more with a child's perspective! :)
