Potato Prints

I remember doing this craft with my niece and nephews when they were younger. This is an easy and fun craft. Let your kids be creative and just have fun.

**There is some simple preparation involved before allowing your children to begin. Parents must prepare the potato before children can begin.
Materials Needed:
·         Potatoes 
·         Poster paint or tempera
·         Paper or cardboard
·         A sharp knife
·         pencil

·         Parents, Cut potatoes in half.
·         Draw desired design onto potato with the pencil. (Star, diamond, squares etc...)
·         Parents, Carve out the design
·         Place paint in tray or paper plate in a thin layer.
·         Press potato design into paint and firmly press
onto paper.
