A quick but fun little art work:
As I can’t be bothered to sew, I bought some plain canvas shopping bags. They are only a euro or so each. The canvas printing paints are a bit more pricy, however, they’ll last for quite a few small projects (4 jars about 20 euros). On top of that we used 2 bruised apples cut in two. I cut a simple “handle” in the “apple stamp” to make it fit better the hands of 2 and 3 year old children.
After the preparations I put a thin layer of paint on an apple half and my kids stamped away.
I may be biased but I’ll much rather use these bags than any with a sterile ad on!
When the paint is dried, we still need to iron it on through a paper towel to stick.
I got the idea to use apples as stamps from a Finnish Facebook crafts group a while ago. I couldn’t find that post anymore but I am sure it is not a unique idea anyway. However, I had to try (with my sons permission) whether this idea could easily be developed to e.g. suit older kids as well. You can make up your mind about turning the prints into butterflies (but I wasn’t allowed to add a bit of pattern to them) but surely there is potential for more variation:
