Masher Print Painting

I love to print and/or paint with unusual "brushes." Today's "brush" of choice were my collection of mashers.
I have a small collection (6 or 7) different manual potato mashers. It is fun to compare the different prints that they make.
Some of them look kind of like bee hives.
Some of them are round like "Mickey Mouse Ears."
Some are kind of squiggly like worms.
Others look like our blocks when they are put away.

This activity was a definite hit with the children, we filled quite a few pages of paper. Next time we might try out the mashers to determine which print style works the best......
