I recently visited a fabulous wallpaper shop as I was thinking about wallpapering my bedroom. When I was there, I saw amazing samples and asked if I could take some to use at school. They happily gave me many samples and I thought I would share one idea that was particularly easy to do.
These wallpaper prints are so effective and could be used to make wrapping paper, cards, pictures....etc.
These are just some of the samples I was given.
I have used these wallpaper samples for collage, drawing and colouring.
As many of my samples have raised prints and are very durable, I decided to do some prints with my class.
Get the children to roll the paint all over the wallpaper.
Lay the wallpaper on clean paper and get the children to rub the paper gently.
Lift the wallpaper to reveal your print.
Check out your local wallpaper or decorating shop and see if they would be happy to give you some samples and see what you can do with them.
