Daffodil Prints

Good Morning Everyone!   Perhaps you went on a Signs of Spring walk last week?  If you did, you may have spotted some daffodils whilst out and about.   Today, why not try this creative printing activity with your little one?  It can be done either inside or out.  All you need is a potato, a knife or apple corer, some paper and some yellow paint.  No paint?  No problem.  You could always make some by mixing water and turmeric – although do be careful, as turmeric can If you can’t see any real daffodils for inspiration, perhaps you can find a picture to show your little one?  Then follow these instructions:

1. Carefully cut the potato in half.

2. Draw a little circle on one half in pencil and a flower shape on the other half as shown in the photo.

3. Use a knife or apple corer to carve the shapes out.  It really doesn’t matter if it’s not perfect – somehow prints always come out looking great!

4. Paint the potatoes and then print as you wish.  You could even use the prints to make cards to send to loved ones.

Happy Printing!  From the Family Time Tips Team via Little Owls Community Pre-school
