Make Lego Prints with Kids!

Before we start, here's a bit about the inspiration behind this activity. Recently our preschool teacher did fish prints with the kids. Yup. Fish prints. They were so incredibly fun to make and the details we captured were amazing! (Image from my IG feed.)
So I simply used this same technique to make these Lego prints!
Let's Make Some Lego Prints!
Grab your Lego board and make a design. (This was our Transformer hideout.)
Cover your work area. Now, paint your Lego pieces!
When your design his painted, cover it with a sheet of newsprint. Carefully run your hands over your entire design, making sure to transfer the paint!
Lift up the paper to reveal a lovely piece of modern Lego artwork!
You can keep reprinting the same design, or move around your pieces to make a new design, or just grab a bucket and start cleaning your pieces. Tempera paint washes right out and kids loooove playing with water! (We used an old toothbrush to get paint out of tiny nooks and crannies!)
