With a rainy day forecast we decided to raid the art cupboard for some inspiration and discovered some lino. The boys had never tried this before and the sharp tool (and therefore an element of danger) appealed to them.
They decided to do their own names first, and as you can see from the top picture I forgot that you need to reverse the letters so it prints out the right way round (doh!)
After finally getting it right, thanks to the lovely lady in the art shop, the boys found the cutting really easy and we bought ink and more lino!
Rolling the paint was really easy - we used some ice-cream tub lids for the paint and then just pressed the paper down on top of the lino for a great result!
The craft cupboard definitely needs a tidy but maybe that's a job for another rainy day!
