Homeschooling Fun:  Autumn Stamping

Homeschooling Fun: Autumn Stamping

For the last few days, our three year-old has been begging to paint.  I finally found the time & patience to assist her in this activity.  I couldn’t let her just take a brush to a piece of paper as we do most often, so we spiced it up a bit with some fall fun!  At very little cost, we made apple & leaf stamps.

I simply took a slice of apple & carved it into shapes with a trusty knife.  Admittedly, my first attempts were pretty pathetic, but lil’ t didn’t seem to mind at all!  She had trouble holding the smooth apple while dipping it in the sticky paint, so I quickly carved a handle.

We collected some soft (not crunchy) leaves from the yard to get some texture in our stamps.  Then we made a few shapes in the apple, ate the cut-outs before dipping the remains in the natural, washable paint, then went to town.  She loved it!

This time we kept it simple:  a few basic shapes & a jack-o-lantern face.  Next time, ahh, well, next time I have plans…to be continued.  🙂
