Painted Potato-Stamps in the Shape of Bugs

Spud Bugs

This activity can be done two different ways, using chopped potatoes as stamps.

Option 1: Write the name of the bugs first and get your little one to stamp the potatoes to match the names.

Option 2: For a more imaginative challenge, make some random and abstract potato stamps together and see what bug patterns you can see in the paint! 🦋 

I used kitchen roll to dry off the chopped potatoes before using so they weren’t too watery, as well as to dab off any excess paint before stamping.

Share your own projects using #muckypicnic ! I’d love to see what you come up with. 😊
