Circle Print Art

Who knew that such magic could be made from old bottle tops and toilet rolls? The perfect preschool craft to explore shape, colour and texture, creating a spectacular piece of art in the process!

It all started with a piece of lego. Angel noticed the circles on top, held it up and said “lets paint with this mum!”.

Following Angel’s lead, a mini scavenger hunt around the house ensued looking for “circles”.

We had so much fun looking for circles and I loved how Olivia seemed to look at items with new eyes; weighing up their printing potential and thinking ‘outside the box’. For very young children, this is a great way to introduce shapes.

We soon set to work combining our circles with neon paint and black card.

Arty Crafty Kids - Circle Print Art Angel completely immersed herself into printing; exploring the range of tools, variety in textures and shapes, carefully layering the prints and colours.

Once Angel had finished applying the bright colours, we allowed the painting to dry before adding a layer of white large circles.

I encouraged Angel to overlap the circles to create some “interesting shapes”, filling some with colour using a paintbrush and her printing tools – A nice little hand control exercise by painting within the lines.

Circle Print Art is a simple concept using everyday items and a little imagination to create something very special and super funky!
