Printmaking with 4 and 5 year olds

Today I visited my son's preschool class to do some valentine printmaking with them. We recycled meat trays and etched into them our designs using dull pencils. After they were complete we rolled ink on them and put them in a hand press. Most important is to show them how to write words in the mirror image and to make sure they press hard enough into foam without breaking through. Here are their wonderful wonderful works of art from today. I may have had more fun then they did:)
