Fun With DIY Potato Stamps Craft

I can’t believe I’ve never in my life made potato stamps! I’ve seen them a million times before and you would think that, as a homeschooler, at some point I would have made them with my girls. Well a few weeks ago we remedied this huge oversight of mine and made our very own DIY potato stamps craft and had lots of fun! If you’ve never made them before, why not give it a try? Here’s how we did it.

 DIY Potato Stamps Craft

Cut the potato in half. Use a paring knife to score the shape you want. Cut around the outside edge of the potato to remove the excess.


Cut out notches to make handles.

These are all the shapes we made. The heart, star and circle were a little tricky.

We used our stamps to practice patterns. My daughter had lots of fun with this. I wonder if it would be too hard to make letter stamps. That would be a super fun way to practice spelling simple words like, cat, hat, bat etc. I’ll have to give it a try.

Have you made DIY potato stamps before? What shapes did you make? What did your kids make with them. I’d love to hear your comments 🙂

Jennifer Saarinen: I’m a stay at home, homeschooling mom. I live with my husband and 2 daughters, along with our 2 dogs, cat, and rabbit. I suffer from depression and found it very difficult to work outside the home. Our simple lifestyle has allowed me to stay at home with our girls while my husband works. We decided that it would suit our family to homeschool. I truly enjoy the time with my daughter’s and find teaching them so rewarding. Even I’m learning new things! To help earn a little extra money on the side I babysit 3 days a week and I’m also a Oliver’s Labels Agent and Watkins Independent Associate. I started my blog, Homeschooling Mom 4 Two, to share stories of family life and homeschooling along with product reviews and giveaways.
