Potato stamps


Squueze some red paint and white paint onto flat plates and spread the paint out.
Press the triangle potato stamp into the red paint then stamp onto the paper to give a toadstool cap. Press into paint again and make lots more red toadstool caps over the paper.

Dip the flat end of a pencil into white paint and use this as a stamp to make the white spots on the toadstools. You could also use fingers and finger paint the spots.
