Tissue Paper Prints
Print making is a fun way to learn about the artistic process and the math concept of multiples. Make multiple images in just minutes with this activity that has your child create a tissue-paper printing plate. Create a picture or a unique design by gluing brightly colored tissue paper to cardboard, then transferring it to a water soaked paper print.
Tissue paper printing is just one way to learn about the art of print. This simple activity requires fewer materials (and often less mess) than more traditional ink based methods. Additionally, this activity serves as a fun collage project, and your child will also be creating a stunning tissue paper collage that can be kept long after printing use.
What You Need:
- Cardboard cut into a shape such as a rectangle
- Colored tissue paper (Make sure that the tissue paper does NOT say non-bleeding)
