How to Make Potato Heart Stamps Craft for Kids

Adult Prep

Here’s what you need to prepare before hand so your toddler or preschooler or kindergartner can make this craft largely on their own. Toddlers and preschoolers will need very little assistance with this craft.

  1. Grab your potato and cut it in half.
  2. Place your heart cookie cutter in the middle and press it in as much as you can.
  3. Take a knife and cut around the cookie cutter about 1 inch down.
  4. Remove the potato from around the cookie cutter.
  5. Remove the cookie cutter. You should have a heart shape left in the potato.
  6. Pour out some red, pink or purple paint on a paper plate and place a few paint brushes beside it.
  7. You can repeat to make a few stamps. You can also create lines in the heart so that it stamps a design.

  2. Give your toddler or preschooler or kindergartner the stamp and let them paint the heart with one of the colours. Then let them stamp the hearts all over the paper of white card stock.
  3. Once all the paint is gone they might enjoy painting with a different colour.

Set in the ultimate crafting space, Curious Crafting is a short form pre-school age series about the joy of making crafts. I lead a rotating cast of adorable little preschoolers (including my own) making magic out of common household objects.

In each episode we transform recycled items into magical crafts like a milk carton school bus, paper bag puppet or cotton pad turtle. The crafters learn and laugh their way through each activity while demonstrating what their young imaginations can create. 

Curious Crafting shares the adventure and joy of making art with takeaway lessons for creating crafts at home.
