Potato stamps are lots of fun and cheap and easy to make.

Toddlers and pre-schoolers will love getting their hands messy.
 

What you’ll need

 
  • 3 or 5 potatoes any size (more if you like)
 
  • Paper towels
 
  • A pencil and a sharp knife or a selection of sharp-edged Easter cookie cutters
 
  • A selection of paint colours
 
  • Saucers, a muffin tray or small mixing containers for the paints
 
  • Plain paper
 

What you need to do


1. Cut the potatoes in half, ensuring you have a nice flat surface on each side.

2. Leave the potato skins on (no need to peel!) as it'll make them less slippery and easier to hold.

3. Blot the cut sides of the potatoes with the paper towels to remove any excess moisture.

4. With your pencil draw a pattern onto each potato half and use a sharp knife to cut around it. Otherwise use sharp-edged Easter cookie cutters to cut out the shapes.

5. Put a thin layer of paint(s) into each saucer or tray.

6. Set up the paper and your little one is ready to start dipping the potatoes into the paint and creating their own Easter works of art!
