Potato Stamp Craft For Toddlers
Quick and Simple Guide To Making Potato Stamps
- Clean potatoes of dirt
- Cut each potato in half
- Trace a design or draw the shape you want to make straight onto the potato – bear in mind you need room on the potato to cut round it.
- Use a sharp knife to cut along the lines you’ve drawn to make your shape. Cut around a quarter of an inch deep to ensure the shape is raised enough for stamping.
Quick Guide To Using Potato Stamps
- Pour poster paint colours into a paint tray or onto a plate.
- Allow your toddler to use a paint brush to add paint to each stamp.
- Watch as your toddler stamps away to create beautiful art.
- Wash potato stamps and dry them for use with another colour.
