Hello everyone.Hope you are all keeping very well.It`s very important to play outside these days.The weather is glorious at the moment so get out and enjoy it.

Here is a simple art idea to do at home.It is called Panda Potato Print Art.First wash and dry your potato.An adult will cut it in half.An adult could put it on a fork for you too.Next,you paint the flat surface of your potato white.Next,start stamping the face shape onto a coloured A3 or A4 page.Leave to dry.Then,an adult can cut little circular shapes from the potato .These can be painted in black and used to stamp eyes onto your pandas.Next add ears and mouth and nose to each panda face.You could use cotton buds to add ears,nose and mouth to each panda face ,if you wish.

You could also use your potato to stamp flower heads on to a page and use cotton buds to add petals and stems to your flowers.
