Easter Potato Stamping Craft for Kids

IMG_0933.jpg

It was a beautiful February day here in Michigan today. Nothing but sunny skies and temps reaching the mid-40s, so that got me motivated to start some Easter crafts today with my son! Thank you, Pinterest, for the inspiration.

Here what you will need:

  • a few small potatoes
  • a knife to cut out some designs into the potatoes
  • a few paint colors
  • craft paint paper
  • lots of paper towel!–important if you have a messy toddler like I do!

Directions:

  • grab the small potatoes and cut them in half (adults only, obviously)
  • cut some designs into the potatoes
  • select your desired colors and paint the potatoes
  • press the potatoes firmly onto the craft paper
  • pull the potatoes straight up to reveal your egg!
  • Ta-da!

This craft was super easy, and my son enjoyed painting the eggs and then smashing them onto the paper. Keep in mind he is nearly two, so his craftiness is a work in progress! Start ’em young, right?!

Check out some of our pictures!
