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.

Step 1: Supplies!

Supplies you will need:
  • Styrofoam (we used plates)
  • Stylus, pens, or other pointy tools...(you can also use a mechanical pencil without lead)
  • Paper  (scrap paper for a work surface, cardstock for prints)
  • Pigment ink pad
  • Brayer
And I used a couple kids...an 8 year old and a 10 year old.
awsome hope you win !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks! :)
These are adorable! What an easy, fun craft. I especially like the TARDIS :D
Thanks Jessy! I am such a doctor who nerd!
I really like this 'ible for its contents, and thanks for listing the kids in with the rest of the supplies! Made me chuckle.
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! :)
