The entire family will enjoy this unique project. This simple art project will have your kids busy for hours.
What you need:
Water based paint
Pencil or marker pen
Paper or something to decorate
- Slice the potato in half. Use a pencil or marker to outline the shape of your choice onto the potato flesh. Cut around this shape with a kitchen knife, leaving the design so it is raised on the surface of the potato.
- Dip your stamp in a saucer of paint so it is evenly coated.
- Begin stamping the potato stamp as desired. This can be stamped multiple times before the potato needs additional paint. The potato can be washed after use and used again with another color.
- Allow your artwork to dry, additional decorations can be applied as needed.
