Preschool Potato Print Families

This is a tried and true project. Teachers have done this for years but I pulled it out of my "bag of tricks" and you would have thought it was a new invention. For "Our Family" unit last week, I cut potatoes length wise. The children painted one side of the potato and made potato prints to represent each member of their family. After the print dried they added facial features, arms and legs to each family member. As with any preschool project enjoying the process was the most fun.
Books we enjoyed with this unit
Are You My Mother? (Beginner Books(R))Mortimer Spanish Edition (Munsch for Kids)


  1. I can't remember when I painted with Potatoes last. I am going to have to pull that out soon!

  2. I recently ran across some beautiful paintings with other fruits and vegetables I can't wait to share with you!
