I mentioned in my last free Sketchbook Prompt blog post about repeat printing that I had a great preschool process art project in the works to share and this is it! I hope you love all the picture- I couldn’t narrow it down this time, they’re all just so lovely!
This preschool process art activity is inspired by my friends over at Small Hands Big Art! Head there for the original project idea with detailed instructions and examples. I scaled down the wood block size to work on smaller format paper and was so happy with the results. Plus my wood total cost was less than $3- my husband just cut down a cheap 2”x3” stud and I sanded them smooth so they’d be safe and splinter free for little hands. My groups of kiddos each have 30 minute classes and this project was perfect for two sessions. We also used regular black ink pads for the printing part of this lesson! Easy peasy.
Preschool process art can be loose, and messy!
We’ll be revisiting this block printing process again for sure!
