Kids plan ahead as they carefully carve their corrugated cardboard printing plate. They'll dive into this project to create their own ripples!
Ask an adult to help you cut a printing plate from corrugated cardboard with Crayola® Scissors.
With Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils, draw a design on the cardboard. This is a printing plate, so your design will print in reverse.
Your print will have three areas: solid color, ripples, and unpainted. Choose which areas you want to print in solid color and mark them.
Use the blade of your scissors to cut edges on the top layer of cardboard for the shapes you wish to appear as ripples in your print. Peel away the top section of cardboard to reveal the corrugated stripes.
Remove both the top layer of cardboard and the corrugated part for sections you want to leave without paint.
Cover your work surface with recycled newspaper. Pour Crayola Washable Kid's Paint on a paper plate. Roll a foam roller in the paint to cover it. Evenly roll the paint on the printing plate.
Press paper on top of the paint-covered plate. Rub gently to assure that the paint is transferred to the paper. Carefully peel off the paper. Dry.
