Amaze your kids by turning a pantry staple into a great potato printer stamp! They can use the stamp to transform ordinary paper into decorative gift wrap, book covers, or stationery.
What You'll Need:
- Ballpoint pen
- Poster paints
- Clean foam food tray (from fruits or vegetables only)
- Drawing or brown mailing paper
How to Make a Pattern Printer Stamp:
Step 1: Cover your work surface with newspaper. Clean a potato, and help kids cut it in half.
Step 2: Draw a shape on the cut surface with a pen. Assist kids by cutting away the edges so that the shape stands out.
Step 3: Place some poster paint on a clean foam food tray. Dip the potato shape in the paint, and then press it on a piece of paper.
Step 4: Continue stamping the paper until you've created a pattern you like. Let the paint dry.
