Potato stamps

Oh, this is so much fun! My boy wanted to do some printing and tried to make a stamp from wood and foam, but it didn’t really work out. Then I remembered the potato stamps from my childhood and we carved a few potatoes. Even Papa joined in and we happily stamped away with our potatoes and watercolors…. The stamped paper we used as gift wrapping paper.

The advantage of using potatoes is that the material is relatively cheap and we can just compost the not so nice ones. However, the disadvantage of potato stamps is that we have to toss all your stamps at the end of the day, also the ones we would like to keep. So, I guess, next time we will try to make real stamps!

This is my contribution to Creadienstag!

  1. What a nice family project! Even a father/husband involved … I’ll tell my man about your example, our boy would be really happy to do some artsy projects with both parents🙂 Thanks for the great ideas (both wrapping paper and male involvement).
    Best wishes, kik
