Preschool Pencil Stamp Art – The Earth

Pretty simple project but one that works fine motor skills and has a beautiful result.

Pencil Dot Earth

Grab pencils with erasers, ink pad (we used our Melissa & Doug pad) and a print out of the Earth. We used this FREE printable, the same one we used for our resist painting guest post at The Lone Home Ranger, from Make and Takes.

Open up the ink pad, stamp the eraser onto the pad and then onto the coloring page. We didn’t feel the need to work within the lines of the earth.

My son liked to use both ends of the pencil.

We left the project all morning. He’d come back and revisit it every so often.

Once we deemed it complete, I cut around the edge of the Earth, laminated it and used double sided tape to display it proudly on our window next to our other Earth Day projects.

Thank you for choosing to stop by today!
