I set out the last of our tempera paint and some notecards for Starboy to decorate some thank you notes after the holidays. He wasn't too interested, so I showed him how to make a simple print by painting on one half of the card, and pressing....or by pressing a wet, painted card onto a dry one, making two cards.
He loved it. Though the prints this time were not as beautiful as the process.
He couldn't stop making them. The beauty of the project, of course, is that one always needs notecards, and a stack of notecards makes a great gift.
We dried them on trays
