Mum or Dad will need to cut out the potato stamp, but children can have great fun with these.
You will need:
- Sharp knife
- A shallow dish
Wash the potato and cut it in half. On the cut face of the potato, use the knife to carve a simple shape (e.g a star). Cut away the potato surrounding the shape, so that the shape protrudes about half a centimeter (1/5 inch). Children can now use this shape as a stamp. Put the paint in a shallow dish, so they can 'ink' the stamp in the paint.
