Potato Print Snowman

Even though it has warmed up a bit, we still can't shake this chill. So, snowmen were the plan again for today! This time we used a potato to create our snowy friend.

1. Cut the potato in half. Then, cut a slice off of each end on one of the halves.

2. Dip the half (that does not have the end cut off) in the white paint and print it on a piece of construction paper.

3.Now, do the same with the larger end of the other half.

4.Finally, flip that half over and use the smaller end to make the head of the snowman.

5. The only thing left to do is decorate your snowman. We used crayons and markers, but any materials would be fine.

  13. POTATO STAMPS!

    I've forgotten all about doing those! My littlest kids are 10 and 11 (a bit past the toddler stage) but I know they would love potato stamps. Heck, I'm nearly 50 and I would love doing potato stamps!

    Thanks for reminding me of a how a good old fashioned simple craft can create such beauty!

    Warmest Regards,
