Show your child how to make his own cards, embellished with dazzling constellations, giant galaxies, and colorful planets. And the best part: you won't have to visit a stamp or craft store to make them. Have a few potatoes on hand? How about a knife? Paint? Your child will be fascinated by his ability to make his own stamps with just a couple of easy-to-find materials.
What You Need:
- Black or blue card stock
- Potatoes (small ones for small stamps and large, russet potatoes for larger stamps)
- Kitchen knife
- X-acto knife
- Paint (white or yellow tempera works great. For something really special, try silver or glow-in-the-dark paint from a craft store)
