Tips for Stamping

  • If the stamp pad is a little dry or empty, use a little tempera paint! Squeeze it all over the ink pad and then spread it out with a sponge brush to even out the paint.
  • Show the kids how to use the stamps and get a good amount of paint on the entire stamp.

Not only is stamping an easy activity to set up and for kids to get creative with on their own, it also involves holding small objects just so and pressing with the fingers which is great for working on fine motor skills and strengthening.

Process Art Challenge

The Process Art Challenge was started to challenge parents to provide different art materials to their children for free creative exploration. Process Art is about the process and not about the product.
