So my Saturday class has been on a printing extravaganza. We made Styrofoam prints with old egg cartons/trays and pencils. This is almost always a hit!The kids like rolling the ink and especially like to mix the ink colors.
I also tried to make stamps from foam garden kneeling pads and s wood burning pen. This turned out very well and I was impressed with the results. I had the kids draw the design with a sharpie and took them home and burned them. They were so easy to do and just melted like butter. The smell was a bit much.
I am debating on making more stamps for resell. They worked great with the ink and I have yet to try them with stamp pads.
