Here is a fun upcycled toilet roll Lucky Clover stamper, great fun for quick, easy and effective art that is perfect for young children!
We had been experimenting with different painting techniques over the last week using:
Little N had wanted to paint with the colour green so once these paintings were dry I kept them to one side ready to use in this lucky clover printing.
So not only were we recycling the toilet rolls but we were also reusing her previous paintings she had done.
You can use 3 toilet rolls to create a Shamrock or use 4 to create a lucky clover. Little N wanted to use to use 4.
1. Apply pressure to the rolls to create a heart shaped tube, like above.
2. As Little N is only 2 years old I attached the 4 toilet rolls together using tape. I would advise using tape over ribbon or string as tape will hold the rolls in place and make a more effective stamper. If you are doing this with older children you can use just the 1 stamper and get them to match up the heart stamps to create their own shamrocks.
3. As the background was painted green I decided to create a 'rainbow' paint palette. I squirted a variety of colours onto a tray, when the stampers were dipped into the paint they had rainbow outline!
4. It was then time for the fun part. Dipping the toilet roll shamrock stamper into the rainbow paint.
5. Once the stamper is covered in paint, start printing on paper. Some of the shamrocks that were spaced out enough I cut out and created a Shamrock garland, which made a lovely decoration.
