Be careful not to slide the rubber stamp on the puzzle surface. Continue stamping until you have completed the design. Let the ink dry. (To use only part of a stamp -- as we did -- block off part of the puzzle with sticky notes and stamp the design you want between the notes.)Color your design with colored pencils or markers.If you blow up like a balloon after a big Thanksgiving dinner, you'll feel right at home with this next craft.For more kids' crafts and fun activities, see:
