Polyblock (polystyrene tile) printing kit for kids

X

Description

This fantastic kit contains everything you and your child need to make a series of amazing prints, using child-safe polystyrene tiles and water-based printing inks. It keeps children creatively occupied for hours! ★ Have fun and learn about block printing WITHOUT the need for standard sharp carving tools. ★ The polystyrene (poly) blocks/ tiles are easy to mark with the included pencil and pen. No sharp tools are needed so the kit is suitable and tested with children as young as 3. But equally enjoyable as an adult. ★ The kit items can be used over and over again - all you need is more polystyrene sheets/blocks when they run out! ★ Start by printing on the included cards and coloured card sheets, blend your colours and create beautiful designs. ★ Polyblocks can be used to print on fabric as well as paper and card

What's included in the price?

Each kit contains: Double sided A4 instruction sheet complete with ideas for using the kit. Fully illustrated with colour photos showing how you/your child can use the kit to create wonderful artwork. 4 x square sheets of polyblock (approx. 15cmx 15cm) and 4 rectangles (approx. 15cm x 6cm) 1 x 60mm printmaking roller to spread the ink 3 x 30ml tins of washable water-based printing ink in vibrant primary colours 1 x A5 ink tray 3 x wooden sticks to transfer the ink onto the palette 5 x blank cards and envelopes to do your first prints 6 x A5 variety pack of coloured card for printing Pencil and pen for mark-making ★ Carefully packed in a kraft box and shipped in appropriate packaging ★ Tried and happily tested by under 10 years olds (see front cover label for some of their work)

What you will need

Creativity and imagination: Kids are encouraged in my instruction sheet to go around your home and try to find objects to try to impress into the surface of the polystyrene tiles- keys, pens, coins...the list is endless and just requires a little creative curiosity! They are pressed into the tile BEFORE they add any ink so they will all remain clean. Printmaking can get messy, so please put down newspaper before rolling out the inks in the tray provided, and printing!
