Cardboard Printing

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Toddler's Busy Book

Your toddler can use a rolled piece of corrugated cardboard as a stamp to create flower-like shapes.


Materials

  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Tape or rubber band
  • Liquid tempera paint
  • Construction paper

Directions

  1. Cut a strip of corrugated cardboard about 6 inches by 10 inches. Make sure the corrugated ridges run parallel to the 6-inch sides.
  2. Place the cardboard on the table in front of you, smooth side up.
  3. Starting with a 6-inch side, roll up the cardboard tightly. Make sure the corrugated ridges end up on the outside of the roll.
  4. Secure the roll with tape or a rubber band.
  5. Dip the end of the cardboard roll into the paint and press onto paper to make a flowerlike print.
