I am not sure what age group you are doing monoprints with, but I found a
very inexpensive and easy intro monoprint lesson to do with young kids:

Using water-based markers (Crayola work well), have the students draw a
picture or design on aluminum foil. They will be disappointed at first
because the ink will barely show. When they finish, dampen a piece of
white heavy paper with a sponge. Lay it on top and be sure to press and
rub all areas. The print will be bright and the colors will run just
enough to soften the edges - it is a great effect! (We did this project
using fall colors and did leaf shapes)
