How to Make Potato Stamps

Sharing is caring!

Learn how to make potato stamps without cookie cutters or any specialized equipment. This was a quick homeschool project with my kids!

We’ve been homeschooling my two older sons this year and have done a number of fun projects with them. I like to work with what I have on hand because I’m struggling to get to the store with the 3 littles at home. Today we’re making potato stamps which the kids LOVED.

Last week we made DIY old fashioned paper. We’ve been reading You wouldn’t want to live without writing and You wouldn’t want to live without books. This series is pretty fun- lots of gross details that kids love, but the books are packed with information that covers history, science, and health.

How to Make Simple Potato Stamps

Supplies:

  • Potatoes
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ink Pad Or Paint
  • Knife
  • Paper
  • Toothpicks

Tutorial:

1. Cut potatoes in half.

2. Put your tomato raw sides down on a piece of paper and trace around it. This gives you a template so your design won’t be too big.

3. Draw bubble letter on paper. Thicker, larger letters work best. Don’t forget to make sure your letter on the stamp is reversed!
