Anyway, enough weather woes, whether (hey, see what I did there...) we are complaining that it is too hot, too cold, too dry, too frozen... Lets get on to the project!
Rainbow Potato Stamping
What you will need
- 1-2 potatoes, cut in half
- Tempera or other washable paint in red, yellow, and blue
- Something to contain the paint: paper plate, pie pan, etc...
- Craft paper
- Optional: small knife for carving
Let your child experiment with the spuds, letting them paint, stamp, and create designs. See what happens when the there is a lot of paint on the potato, versus a little paint. What happens with you move the potato side by side instead of stamping up and down? Grab a stamp yourself and get into the project with your kids. Chances are high that they will mimic what you are doing.
