Activity 2: Using either 3D shapes or objects around the house, place the object in paint and place the object onto a piece of paper. Discuss what 2D shapes you have made? what 3D shape you used to create this shape? can you match the 3D shapes to the print? 


for example: using the base of a tin of beans, place in paint and print onto paper. This would make a circle shape, however the object is cylinder which is a 3D shape. 


you can use blocks, lego, food, packaging, cardboard, kitchenware to make a variety of shapes for printing.
