Craft Ideas for Kids - Christmas Potato Stamping

Christmas Potato Stamping

Ohhh who doesn’t remember potato stamping as a kid? It’s a classic craft; cheap and easy to set up too! Whilst baby cakes simply slid and bashed the stamp across the paper, Little Lovely enjoyed playing and experimenting in the attempt to make the ‘perfect’ tree; they both in their own way had a blast Christmas potato stamping.

How-to for Christmas Potato Stamping

To get the kiddies going, I cut a potato in half and carefully carved a Christmas tree shape into the potato, aiming for about 1cm depth and an even ‘tree’ surface.

With prep complete within about 5 min, I presented the Christmas Potato stamp and paint to the Little Lovely.

Little Lovely worked her way through so much paper! Applying different amounts of paint and pressure to the stamp to achieve her ‘perfect’ trees. She tried fast stamping, slow stamping, dinosaur stamping with sound affects – needless to say, she had fun!

With her trees perfected, they needed decorating and we swapped the Christmas Potato Stamp for cue tips.

For now, Little Lovely is happy creating a simple Christmas themed painting, however this technique could be used to create cards or home-made wrapping paper!
