Potato Stamps for Valentine’s Day

I’ve read about using potatoes as simple stamps and decided to give it a try for Valentine’s day.  I chose a small potato that would fit in Oliver’s hand easily and cut it in half.  I drew a heart on the potato and used a knife to remove the potato on the outside of my heart shape.

It was hard to get a crisp line around the heart, so I used a spoon to scrape the edges clean.

I put some fingerpaint on a plate and let Oliver stamp away.

 

The hearts have a rustic homemade feel.  Perfect for wrapping little presents or for making a Valentine for Daddy.

The potato also turned into a great paint brush and hand painter once the novelty of stamping wore off.

Oliver rates this craft a five out of five fingers!
