School/kids crafts


Yesterday, we had an epic craft/science afternoon in grade 5. We made sunprints and the kids loved it. I used to do this activity all the time when I worked at the Canadian museum of contemporary photography and it was always a big hit. The scientific name for it is cyanotype, but it’s basically special paper treated with a UV light sensitive material. It makes a print of whatever you put on it, exposing the paper that isn’t covered (which is very similar to a negative film). You can purchase the paper on this website and it’s so worth it! For young and old! 🙂
