You’ve got to love the humble potato, if you’re not eating them for dinner they make fantastic stamps too. Just cut them in half, press in a cookie cutter, trim around the edges and dunk them in some paint. We thought it’d be fun to make some homemade wrapping paper using plain paper and the kids stamps as decoration.
While we were testing out potato stamps, we wanted to see if other veges worked just as well. The kids tried out cabbage, fennel and apples and stamped them on sheets of paper to make homemade posters.
“The cabbage made so nice patterns. Now potatoes feels totally old-school”
Corn roll cushions
But the surprise biggest hit of the day was using corn as paint rollers. We added a couple of skewers in the ends to make them easy to hold and the kids rolled them over plain cushion covers to make their own arty textile decorations.
