Kindergarten stamp printing: Architecture

a great intro to architecture and housing
Kindergarteners learned about different kinds of architecture, and who an architect is in the community.  We used stamp printing techniques to create the geometric shapes that make up a building.
Legos, marker tops, cardboard scraps, sponge shapes and cardboard tubes were dipped in white paint and stamped on blue paper, creating "blueprints."  Although this project is a little messy, the results are so worth it!

  1. I love these.(and the play on words, too!!)

  2. Adorable! I may steal this for a hands-on activity at my art show. :)

  3. Such a great idea! Love how it looks in simple blue and white. The lego blocks make such great stamps!

  4. Love it, love it! The prints are lovely, and so bold for one color only. I love the idea of calling them blueprints. Bravo!

  5. This is so unique, thank you for sharing!! I'm definitely going to do this with my kindergarteners.

  6. Superb!!! I'm doing it tomorrow with my K-2 art students!
