You know how kids like to play with different colors and shapes! So why not make really cool and super simple craft foam stamps for the little ones to play with.
You can make really cute stamps just the way you and your little ones want it, by using small pieces of foam rubber and different kinds of lids. Because my daughter is still to young to be able to cut the pieces herself, I cut them for her after she told me what shapes she wants her stamps to have.
Then we glued the pieces of craft foam onto the lids and ended up with 10 different stamps (not all are in the photos). I must admit it was hard to stop once you get going and the ideas start flying.
I cut the requested shape from the foam rubber and the used liquid glue to glue it to the lid. At first the craft foam started to twist on the edges so I had to glue the edges a couple of times to make them really stick to the lid.
This was probably due to the fact I used lids that are not perfectly flat but protrude out a little bit in the middle. Therefore I would recommend using the flattest lids you have on hand.
Once the glue dries all you need to do is paint the craft foam with the desired color and you’re ready to start stamping!
This was the first time my daughter use stamps. At first, the imprints were very fudgy, but then she got the hang of it and started creating beautiful scenes, combining the different motifs into a picture. But the most important thing, she had a really good time.
After you’re done, just gently wash the stamps with water and put them away until the next time you need them.
