I am linking up to a post I shared last year on potato printing. This was a great activity to make with the kids when I had a green potato that I didn't want to cook. We have one sitting on the microwave so I think we might be doing some printing this afternoon :)
I remember when I was little my Mum would cut up a couple potatoes into "stamps", then set me up with some butcher's paper and paint so I could print potato shapes - it was one of my favourite craft activities growing up!

All you need is:
Butcher's paper or art paper
It's another easy activity (if you haven't noticed by now, I like it easy), and it doesn't require a lot of skill, you just need to be able to cut a potato into a shape - I made a mushroom, and Easter egg design.

Popette enjoyed painting the potatoes with different colours and stamping them on to the paper.
