    word to substitute for 'demonstrated'

    Aunt Jean demonstrated how we should press the potato halves firmly on some colours and print them on the paper.

    Which word can I substitute for the word in bold - 'displayed' or 'showed'? I would choose the former. However, the latter seems to be fine too.

    Thanks.
