I also think that my kids would love to try their hands at this type of printmaking. It would give me an excuse to buy all the supplies so that I could dabble as well.

It took some cajoling to convince our boys that Grandma does not want robot stationery for Christmas and that our friends do not especially want Lego-themed Holiday cards in the mail. . .

It’s basically a sheet of eraser like material. My 4 year old can carve his own blocks using regular lino-cutting tools on the speedy cut . It’s very soft and your end product is like a big rubber stamp. You can mount it on a piece of wood if you want it to be less bendy for the printing process. I’ve even used small rectangular white erasers to make little rubber stamps. It’s a great way to teach the proper way to hold and use the tools since you need far less pressure to carve than a traditional lino block. Great tutorial.
