Snowman Potato Printing – Kids Craft

Unfortunately, December flew by for us this year.  Right as Christmas was flying by, my kids said, “Why didn’t we do any Christmas crafts this year?”  The only answer I could think of was that I didn’t really feel like it, but that’s hard to tell to your kids.  I’m pregnant, so everything extra to do is effort.  Instead, I quickly turned my answer around and said, I don’t know, but we’re going to do some winter crafts!  So..we began our winter crafts with Snowmen!

These snowmen were a lot of fun to make.  You cut a potato in half and use it as your stamp.  It’s funny how something so simple can please the kids so much!  (Hint:  cut your potato as flat as possible, or you’ll have a bumpy looking snowman).

Snowman Potato Stamping

 

Supplies:

Potato Stamped Snowman

White Paint
Construction Paper
Twigs (or Construction paper) for arms
Potato cut in half
Black paper for buttons, eyes & mouth, cut into circles
Orange paper for nose
Clear or White glitter to embellish (optional)

Directions:

  1. Cut your potato in half.
  2. Dip it into white paint
  3. Let the kids make 3 balls for the snowman out of it.
  4. Use 9 black dots to embellish the snow man.  2 for the eyes, 3 for the mouth and 4 buttons going down.
  5. Use an orange triangle for the nose.
  6. Glue twigs down for the arms.
  7. My kids wanted a top hat, so we cut one of those out of the black paper at the last minute.
  8. They wanted to complete their pictures with snow on the ground and snow falling out of the sky, so I gave them that freedom as you’ll see in the photos below.
  9. Be sure to sprinkle with clear or white glitter, to make your snow glisten.
