With the spring nearing and the weather warming, I thought that a spring craft was in order. When I think of spring, I, of course, think of the flowers, of the rain and I think of butterflies. We are big fans of paint stamping. We have used potatoes, apples, marshmallows and other odds and ends to make prints. We had a bag of old potatoes, so they were going to be perfect for our spring project.
Cut a potato in half and then slice of a little bit from one end so that one end has a straight edge. Do this to both potatoes.
Cut a small V-shaped piece out of the side opposite of the straight end. Carve a line from the V to the opposite end.
Dip both potato pieces into paints of assorted colors.
Stamp the two pieces of potato side by side with the straight edges facing each other.
Let your stamps dry.
Draw or paint in the butterfly’s body and antennae.
You can even add a background with paint or crayons or markers around your butterflies.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
I am with Mai and sure loved the end result! 😉
Thanks Janine. Sometimes, I think I like doing these kiddie crafts more than her.
