WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE BLOCK AND PAPER TOWEL PRINTS?
My stumbling block, literally.
Did you know kids can use these for more than building and throwing? They are great for play dough also as the kids can make imprints in the dough of backwards letters. As long as you don't mind backwards letters.
HOW TO MAKE BLOCK PRINTS
To make block and paper towel prints, wrap a length of yarn around the block. I wrapped it 4-5 times one way and the 4-5 times another way to create a cross pattern. I also wrapped them just one way for a different look.
Simply dip the yarn covered blocks in a stamp pad or paint and make some fabulous prints. You know how I like to test out these projects first? Well, this one was really fun and I think it would be a good time for an adult and even a surly tween/teen. This is my sample.
