Potato Stamping the Easy Way

This simple method for creating potato stamp art will have your kids busy for hours. So today, we’re showing you potato stamping – the easy way!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your potato stamps:

  • A large potato
  • Cookie cutters – preferably ones like these that we used which have an imprint in them and will create more of a design when you stamp them
  • Paint

How to Make a Potato Stamp

1. First cut your potato in half. Then press your cookie cutter into the potato as far as you can. Make sure the imprint portion of the cutter goes into the potato. If it doesn’t, flip the potato over and push down hard over top the potato.

2. Now carefully cut around the edge of the cookie cutter (adults only) to leave a portion of potato sticking out where the cookie cutter was.

3. Peel away this excess portion of the potato.

4. Now your potato stamps are ready. Look how pretty they look!

Now have fun potato stamping away! You can make stamped cards, wrapping paper, or just plain print art.
