Benefits of Potato prints:
Potato printing is a great activity for children who have just started developing fine motor skills and can not yet maintain a pincer grip. Due to the size the potato will be easier to handle for them than a pen or pencil. Its also a great game for learning and recognising different shapes and colours.
