This project uses potatoes as the print maker. It is a fun way for kids to make a really great looking print without having to be overly artistic. The printed paper can be used for back to school book covers. I was lucky enough to find large white sheets of easily foldable paper for this project, but CreateForLess has a great roll of Brown Paper, perfect for book covers and print making!





Start by cutting the potato into quarters.


Cover the flat half circle side with pink paint and make impressions with it on the paper.


Let the pink paint dry.


Use a flat brush and paint an arch of green over the pink print. Let the green dry.


Use the end of the brush, dip it into the brown/black paint and dot on the seeds of the watermelon.


Once the paper is dry it can be used to cover books!
