Printing with toys in P1 and P1/2

As part of our Toys project, P1 and P1/2 used printing techniques to create a toy soldier. The children printed using real toys and created some fantastic effects. They rolled toy cars in paint to make tracks which became the soldier’s trousers. Marbles were rolled in paint and over paper to make the buttons on his jacket. The children blew bubbles in paint using straws to create the soldier’s face and hat. Finally the children used transport stampers to make the soldier’s jacket. He looks fantastic and is standing to attention waiting to greet our grown-ups on Parent’s Evening next week!
