Stamp Art Valentines | Idea Gifts

Make your mark with help from a personalized stamp. Household items and a few art supplies are all you need! Check out the following three slides for detailed instructions.

Step 1 : Cut a foam grocery tray to 3 by 4inches. Have your child write a note backwards in pencil, pressing deeply into the foam. (Write words on paper and hold up to mirror to see reverse text.)

Step 2 : Brush a thin layer of paint across the surface of the foam, covering it evenly from edge to edge.

Step 3 : Press and rub paper, label, or tag on top of painted foam, applying some pressure. Peel back and let dry. Repaint before each print, changing the color if desired. Attach to small bags of candy or other gifts.
