After a friend inspired me by doing this with her own kids we decided to give it a try today.
Gather yourself a few tools (I did the actual making of the stamp without my kids … safety first? You wouldn’t think so because later on in the day I gouged my finger with the same knife.)
Potatoes (we used 2), washed and dried
Cookie cutter for shape
Or amazing skills with a knife
Then you’ll cut the potato in half (I’m off centered because I was thinking I could only get one stamp out of each potato), shove your cookie cutter down and remove it from the potato flesh then cut the excess away.
Out of the other potato I made a heart and a “leaf” which can loosely be interpreted as a wonky triangle.
From there – you create!
What other fun uses do you have for food? I think this is a great way to make your own stationary for kids – imagine the Valentines that could come out of this 🙂 Or May Day cards.
