Nowadays children can find everything they want in stores. For example, stamps or Stamps are easily found and there is a lot of variety.
We, whenever you can choose the version, Do it Yourself! (DIY). We believe that this teaches us to value the things we do and also that it helps us to awaken creativity while we learn to make crafts.
Making stamps is very entertaining and it s children can make the design they like.
Activity preparation time : 40 minutes approx.
Difficulty : Low
Caution : With scissors and hot Silicone
- 1 sheet of A4 paper
- 1 Foamy sheet. We bought these in Chinese’s Store.
- Hot silicone
- One piece of cardboard . It can be from a shoe box or a box .
- Glass of water
- Tempera colored paints.
- 1 palette to put the colors, or an egg cup if you don’t have a palette.
Steps to follow :
1.Cut a square in the cardboard about 12 cm.
2.Put the cardboard square on the sheet of paper and draw its outline.
3.Make the stamp drawing you want in the square. The drawing should be a little big because then you have to cut it.
4.Now that you know how the drawing is going to be, take the Foamy sheet and redraw the outline of the square on it.
5.Make the drawing you have practiced inside with pencil. When you finish cut it.
6.Redraw the same drawing on Foamy. Normally the children review the outline and then just draw it. Cut out the drawing.
7.Look closely at the holes in the drawing. For example, if you have made a face, it is better that you make eyes and a large mouth to be able to trim easily.
8.When you have the 2 Foamy drawings cut out, paste them with Hot Silicone on the cardboard.
It should look like this:
9.Now that you have the template made, we can already stamp our stamp.
10.Put the paint on the color palette and paint the stamp of the color you want to stamp with the brush. Try that the holes like the eyes or the mouth are not full of paint.
You can try to make the same stamp with different colors.
