Shapes and Stamping were all the rage last week at Tiny Tuesday at the OKCMOA. I had plenty of supplies for little ones ages 2-5 to stamp their hearts (or squares) out!
This is really simple and fun. I gave the children a few choices for paint color and we used paper plates as our palettes. Their workstations were set up with corrugated cardboard, stickerback foam shapes, big lids from laundry detergent, forks, q-tips and 14x11 white paper.
This was all about experimenting. I gave little instruction and let the kids have fun. First we peeled the paper off our foam shapes and stuck them on the flat side of our corrugated cardboard. We painted the foam shapes and stamped them on our paper. If you don't have cardboard use what you have. I have used wood blocks, floral foam, even gluesticks as stampers.
From here we keep stamping and use some of our other supplies to fill our page. We like to paint the cardboard too as it leaves us with cool stripes!
Laundry detergent lids are great for little hands. Stamp, stamp, stamp...
When one paper was full I replaced it with a new one. We had a great time creating a bright piece of artwork all while learning about shapes!
You will need:
-Heavy white paper
-Sticker back foam shapes
So much fun! If you create this project feel free to share a photo of your finished piece with me on Facebook! Have a creative day!
