Make Your Own Potato Stamps!

Ages: For both of these methods, adults should do the carving as it involves sharp knives. However, children as young as three can have fun using these craft stamps to create beautiful art! Materials needed: some potatoes (the larger the better), a knife or carving tool (or cookie cutters for the second method), an ink pad or paint and brushes,

1) With your tool, carve out the outline of your design into the flesh of the potato. Then, carve the surface of the potato around your image so that it sticks out. For this stamping method, I would suggest choosing fairly simple designs as carving the surface of the potato can prove a bit tricky. You could try a heart, a star, or other geometric shapes for example!

2) Place your stamp onto the ink pad, or cover it with paint using the paintbrush. Once it is entirely covered in ink or paint, place the stamp onto your paper and press hard on it for a few seconds. Remove it from the paper and you should see your image appear!
