Let's face it: kids love stamps. So why not let kids use their bodies to create their own? In this activity, get your kindergartener to create life-sized, body stamps using his own hands and feet. Your child will be amazed at what his own body looks like when it is used to make a stamp on a giant piece of paper. Explore with your child why some parts of his body like his hands and feet look almost exactly as they are when they are pressed to paper, but others like his nose and knees don’t.
This is a great activity to do with more than one child.
What You Need:
- Large sheet of butcher or craft paper
- Newspapers, for lining the room
- Shallow dish for paint large enough to hold a child’s foot
