Potato Stamps

Do you remember making potato stamp art when you were a kid? If not, you need to try it now! Our stamps were pretty simple but I've seen some very creative ones out there!
Check out these ones:





Here is how we did our potato stamps!

 

Using a small cookie cutter, gently press into the center of a cut potato.


Then turn cookie cutter down and gently hit it against a hard surface like your counter or floor until the cutter is pushed all the way in.



With a sharp knife (parents should help here) cut around the cookie cutter about 1/4 of an inch from the top.


Add paint and enjoy! We found they worked best if you used a paper towel to dab off excess paint before stamping on the paper.




We also tried a apple half and celery!



What kind of potato stamp shapes have you tired?
