Kids love to stamp. They get instant results, and it’s a great way to develop their fine and gross motor skills
What You’ll Need:
- Wooden blocks
- Rubber bands
- Toilet paper rolls
- Washable tempera paint or stamp pads

- Art paper
Step 1 – Prepare the stampers
Wrap rubber bands around wooden blocks in criss-cross fashion to make the stampers.
*Tips for Parents: Kids love rubber bands. Let your kids get in on this prep step. Use different sizes and shapes of blocks, and have kids name the shapes as they work with them.
Step 2 – Prepare the paint
Step 3 – Stamp away!
*Tips for Parents: Encourage your kids to dip different sides of the blocks into the paint to make different effects. Use the circular end of a toilet paper tube to add dimension and shape to the artwork.
