Milo Makes Plastic Egg Prints!
It’s time for another Milo Makes! For this project, Milo wanted to try printing with plastic Easter eggs. I know. It’s June, but we have those thing around the house all year round! This one required some adult supervision, but he had so much fun experimenting with the plastic eggs and different ways that he could print with them.
Milo started out by making circles. He dipped the open end of the eggs into the paint and then pressed them onto the construction paper. The black paper was fun for bright neon colors. He also tried stamping with the narrow end of the egg and made lots of dots.
Milo would like me to include a public service announcement letting you know not to snap the plastic eggs shut again after they’re covered in paint because you may end up splattering paint into your eyes. Or, wear goggles. Safety first!
He also liked dragging the eggs across the paper to make streaks. He tried metallic gold paint on yellow paper, and I loved the way that looked! He also tried dipping the egg in paint and spinning it. That didn’t do too much, but it was fun and messy!
In the end, he had several nice abstract pieces with perfect and messy circles mixed with streaks of paint. They will make perfect gift wrapping materials or thank you notes in the future!
