Potato Printing

Potato Printing

Want to make a unique Easter gift for your children to give to loved ones? Use potato printing to create an Easter-themed picture.

All you need is a potato and washable paint, and a parent or guardian on hand to help out with the carving!

Firstly, cut the potato in half and then draw your Easter design (rabbit, chicks, Easter eggs etc) into the flat edge of the potato. Then just cut around the design with a sharp knife to create your potato stamp.

Use a paper towel to blot out the excessive moisture and apply a thin layer of paint to the potato. Your children’s imagination will then run wild, stamping away on paper, card or fabric to make a pretty picture. Just make sure they keep the potato stamp pressed down for a few seconds for best results!

Crackin' Cress Heads

Crackin' Cress Heads

Want a fun decoration for the dinner table this Easter? Your kids will love making these eggshells with living cress ‘hair’.

All you need is two eggs, 2 tsp cress seeds, two cotton wool balls, felt-tip pens or acrylic paints.

Carefully remove the tops from the eggs, leaving the bottom two-thirds of the shells intact. Empty the shells (save the eggs for another time), then carefully wash them out. Decorate the shells with pens or paint, then leave them to dry.
Dip the cotton wool balls in a little water, squeezing off any excess. Place 1 ball inside each shell, then sprinkle 1 tsp cress seeds onto each one. Sit the filled shells in eggcups and leave in a dry, well-lit place for a week – a windowsill is perfect. Your cress will start to grow within a few days, perfect for making egg & cress sarnies!
