How to make stamps at home with your kids
My toddler (who is also a preschooler) is stamp obsessed and loves all her Melissa & Doug Stamps. She uses stamps every single day. I’m always trying to come up with activity ideas that suit my kids different interests.
- Popsicle stick(or tongue dispensers)
- Foam alphabet letters (if you dont have this you can use alphabet cookie cutters on foam sheets.)
- Glue. I had sticky foam alphabet letters but you could also use a low temp glue gun (LOVE this one!) and glue sticks for 1st graders up. I’ve done this too and its a good introduction to learning how to use a glue gun.
- Stamp Pad

How to make other kids stamps using foam letters:
Then the kids created patterns with the shapes and glued that down.
I then placed it on a tray with a piece of paper and let my kids use them.
