montessori at home : stencils and stamps

So I haven't posted a Montessori at home in a while, but I'm really looking forward to getting back into this series! Whilst on holiday we thought we'd try our hand at making some stencils. We cut out shapes from card and then painted over the top of them, lifting to reveal the shape beneath!
We then found some lovely stamps that my sister had carved and made, spread them with paint and made copies on paper...and eventually as temporary tattoos!
Now that we are home I have thought we would try this little activity again but using different materials to make into stencils so we can see what patterns they create...so stay tuned!
