Kids Can Gelli Print Too

The grandkids just got back from their three week trip and spent the day with me. Right away the two oldest asked: did I make a gelli plate while they were gone and could they try it today. Just before they left on the trip we watched a bunch of videos together about gelli printing. They were pretty excited about it and convinced it was something they could easily do.

While little sister was napping I showed them the basics of using the gelli plate and they caught on quickly. Many beautiful prints were created today by these young artists. If you have not tried gelli printing because you think it looks too complicated, be encouraged that my 6 and 4 year old grandkids were able to do it with just minimal guidance.Kids gelli printing 1Kids gelli printing 2After their prints dried they began using some of their art to make Valentine’s cards.Making valentine cards 1Making valentine cards 2Ninja Boy was proud of the gelli printed flag he made.Gelli printed flag
