Warli art with a Potato stamp
This one is for you R’s mom .. Block printing is an activity that can be enjoyed by kids as young as 2 years old. As long as they have a grip it is fine.Here’s one more for the Artsy-Craftsy-June
It got me thinking that there should be an easier way to teach kids how to make a warli stick figure and I thought why not create a stamping kit at home. I made a simple potato stamp for Lil p as detailed below..
I showed her a few stamped prints
and lil p set to work on her own after that
