Tile Paintings

I happened upon a box of unused tiles which led me to make this cool project with the kids.  They arranged the tiles however they wanted onto a piece of cardboard and then I glued them down with adhesive so the tiles wouldn't slide around.  They painted the tiles and then pressed down a piece of paper (we used scrap paper) to make a reversible print.  The kids were so excited to see what print they made, over and over again.  I can't take credit for this idea, though, I heard about from the incredible Lisa Murphy.  So, if you have any old tiles laying around, here is a great way to use them up.  Your kids will love it!
