Potato Stamps

by Hannah Holt »


This classic craft is always fun. See the end of this post for other food based stamp ideas.

Print these directions.

What you’ll need:

  • Potato
  • Knife
  • Paint
  • Paper

Step1: Wash and scrub the potato.

Step 2: Halve the potato. Make a clean cut as each half becomes the surface for one stamp.

Step 3: Cut a design into the potato’s face (about 1/4 inch deep).

Step 4: Cut the surrounding potato away from the design. Be extra careful around corners and small pieces of the stamp.

Step 5: Press the potato into the paint and then onto the paper. Repeat!

Other Fun Produce Stamps…

  • Celery Bunch Roses

  • Apple Daisies
  • Bell pepper clouds with mushroom and asparagus trees

  • (Any firm fleshed vegetable can become a stamp.)

    What a fun blog you’ve got here. I remember doing some of these kinds of things when my children were little. Such fun days those were.
