Crafting with stamps is a fun way to keep kids active, and these egg stamps are here just in time for the Easter and spring season. You can make your own using something that can be found in almost every kitchen: potatoes! Here is how you can get started making your own.
Assorted craft paints
Craft paper to stamp on
1. Start off by cutting the potato in half. Then press the open end of the potato onto the paper towel to help absorb the moisture. The insides are wet and will make the rest of the craft slippery if they aren't dried.
2. Once the open end of your potato is dry, you can start cutting your designs into it. Use a knife or pick to make lines, circles, zig zags, and other shapes. Be careful as the as the potato can be slippery and we are working with a sharp object. Make sure to take your time.
3. Press the open end of the potato to the towel to dry it again, because cutting into it can create more moisture
4.Now you are ready for stamping!
To Use Your Newly Made Stamps;
Press the cut end of the potato into the paint. I recommend putting the paint onto a plate first, this makes dipping your stamp easy. Then, press the potato stamps to the paper, make sure to press firmly. Pull away and see your egg design on the paper. Repeat as much as you want and when you want to use a new color, just rinse the potato with water.
Have Fun stamping!
