up next: the letterpress

Our newest favorite crafty past time comes to us courtesy of Aunt D.  On a piece of lightweight foam, the kids etch/scratch/indent a drawing–aliens, silly faces, flowers, rainstorms were favorite subjects over here. 

Then, we ink the foam piece (note to self:  put down newspaper on the floor for this part.  What was I thinking?) and slap it down on a piece of paper.  Woo hoo!  We’re a printmaking machine, and we’ve got some pretty cool pieces of art to boot.
