Circle Printing with a Paper Roll

Step 1: Spread the black paint across the plate to create an even layer and dip one end of the paper tube into the paint. Give the tube a few twists to ensure the edges are covered.

Step 2: Starting from the top or bottom corner of the apple template, firmly press the painted edge of the paper roll down to create the first print.

Adding Paint

Step 5: Allow the black paint to dry before adding paint.

To speed up the process, Arty Crafty Kids could simply trace round the tube with a black crayon.

Step 6: In this example, we’ve painted our apple in different shades of red, yellow and green – colours typically associated with apples!

This is a fun way for Arty Crafty Kids to explore colour and create light and dark tones.

How many shades of red, yellow and green can they make?
