Make Your Own Stamps!

Summer is just about over. (I know — it’s hard to believe!) If you’re all out of ideas for things to do with your kids, we recommend some stamping fun. Don’t have stamps? No problem! It’s so much more fun to make your own anyway. We’ve been collecting lots of ideas for homemade stamps:


E R A S E R S… Using both the top of pencils or the block variety.

Y A R N… This clever make-shift stamp creates cool, textured lines.

P O T A T O… Can’t forget this classic. Your kids will definitely get a kick out playing with their food.

C E L E R Y… Cut off the bottom of your stalk and stamp to make a pretty rosette. What to do with the rest of the celery? Cut into sticks and keep in the fridge for snacking, of course!

Have you ever made your own stamps before?
