Screen Print


For this activity you will need:

*  one piece of plastic screening (if it’s not in your shed, you can get a piece at the hardware store)

* painters tape (masking tape)

* small roller

* Construction paper

* Paint

First have your child use pieces of the tape to create an image on a screen(s). Then place the screen on top of the paper, roll a contrasting color over the top of the screen. When your child picks up the screen they will see their image on the paper. Have your child continue to print with the same screen or remove the tape and start again. This activity was done with children ages four and five.
