Who doesn’t like doing a classic kids craft like potato printing?  We used home-schooling as a way to do some Easter egg potato printing with BB.

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To do your own Easter egg potato printing you will need:

  • Potato
  • Knife
  • Paint
  • Paper

I like to use the potatoes that are slightly squish and slightly off.  That way I don’t feel too awful about using a new potato.  Cut the potato in half and cut out your design.  I went with very simple designs.

Normally I put some paint onto a plate and let them go wild with it.  That does, however, normally end up in just one big mess of brown paint.  This time, we used a brush to paint the potatoes.  It kept the colours slightly cleaner, but it did allow for a marbling effect.

BB loved to print his potatoes.  He even turned some of his prints into letters like C and O.
