Easy potato stamps for kids
One of the fondest memories I have of kindergarten is making potato stamp pictures with my classmates. While I was peeling potatoes the other night for dinner, the memory popped back into my head and I decided to make a few stamps for the kids — they loved it! Not only is this a super quick craft to whip up, you can find all the supplies right in your pantry.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Potatoes (any type will work, except for mashed of course)
- Small cookie cutters
- A small paring knife
Tip: Stamping can get a little messy; make sure to use washable paint.
How to make your stamps:
- Cut potato in half (dab it with paper towel to ensure the potato is dry).
- Press the cookie cutter into the center of the potato and cut around the cutter with your knife, removing the surrounding potato.
- Add a little paint to the potato stamp. Tip: using a sponge brush gives an even coating.
- Stamp away!
