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!
