Have your child dip one of the fruits or vegetables in one of the paint trays and press it in place on the paper. Dip another fruit or vegetable in another color and press it in place on the paper. Continue to do this filling up the paper.
Encourage your child to make repeated patterns with the colors and shapes, such as blue apple, purple potato, blue apple, purple potato. Allow the prints to dry before wrapping the present!
