Potato Prints **Bucket List**

One of the items on our bucket list was to make potato prints. I have never done potato prints before, even through all my years of teaching, so I decided we would try it. All I did was slice a potato in half and cut some basic shapes into each side. I also did each kids initial. But what I forgot to do was to cut the letter in reverse. Because when they stamped all the letters were backwards! Oh well! Now I'll know for next time! I am not an artist by any means so the shapes were pretty basic. After I cut the shapes out I put some paint on a paper plate and let the kids stamp away. They loved it! They probably stamped about 10-12 pages. Ryan would stamp and then he would rub the potatoes all over the paper so it would smear. But Gabe was very meticulous about his stamping. He would line up all the shapes in a line on some he even lined them up by color. He gets that from his dad! :)

Some of the paintings when we were done!

Notice the letter R is backwards...
