Potato Stamps: One Potato – Three Designs

Spread the love


This morning I noticed that we had a couple of sad looking potatoes sitting on our pantry shelf. Whenever we have old potatoes we like to use them for potato stamping crafts. My daughter has a thing for snails lately, so I thought that they would make a cute subject for our morning project.

Potato Stamps - one potato - 3 different designs. Make a snaiil, a rose or a lollipop

As usual I cut my potato in half & then cut the skin away from the edges to help the potato lay flatter for when we press it into the paper.


I carved out a swirl into the middle of the potato.


I called Mai into the kitchen & showed her the stamps & showed her how we could make a stamped snail with it. I used the potato to make the stamp for the snail’s body. Mai made a few stamps & then I drew in a head & little tail &  added a couple of googly eyes.

I asked Mai if she wanted to make her own.

She stamped a few & said “Silly mama, this is for lollipops.”

She had a brilliant idea indeed.

I trimmed the edges just a touch more to make the potato more round than oval. We both stamped our pieces of paper.




Mai painted in her own lollipop sticks.


I added cake pop sticks that we had from a previous project to mine. I tied small pieces of yarn to form bows for our pops.

The lollipops reminded me of roses, so we squeezed one more craft out of our old potato.

    1. Thank you. I am moving around much better the past couple of days, but then sore by about this time. Lol! I am back resting. It is not easy to rest much with a toddler at home.
