Making your own wallpaper

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Lyndsey

Use marbles or potatoes etc, to do some printing on a piece of paper.

When each child has made an A4 page, they can scan their picture and use is as a backdrop (wallpaper) on their computer or mobile device.

A very effective way of personalising your computer, and teaching printing and scanning skills at the same time! You could also take a digital photograph of your art work and use that!
