Easter Potato Printing

Create colourful prints with potatoes and paint!






First cut the potatoes in half - try to ensure you have an egg shaped potato when it's cut in half.

Then, very carefully, carve out some patterns.  We did zig zags, stripes and attempted spots but that wasn't very easy - maybe some sort of special tool would have made spots easier.



Now you can either dip the potato straight into the paint and start printing or if you want different colours on each print you'll need to paint the colours onto the potato with a brush as we have done here.

Happy Easter!
