Looking for a great way to make dot stamps? Try using a wine cork! We used wine corks to make our gumballs in a gumball machine. The perfect size, the corks are easy and fun to use!
Time: 10 minutes (plus drying time for paint)
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Various paint colours
Red craft paper
Cardstock or heavy craft paper
Find a gumball machine template that you like and print it out.
Pick your paint colours and pour out on a tray or lid.
Dip the corks in paint, stamp to the side to get off excess paint and then stamp on your gumball machine.
Let the paint dry.
Colour or paint the rest of your gumball machine or cut out the gumball machine from red craft paper. Highlight mechanisms with black marker.
Mount on a piece of cardstock or craft paper to display or put on a card for a cute birthday card!
Looking to improve counting and math skills? Print off several gumball machines and write down a number at the bottom of the sheet. Children can use the paint and wine cork stamps to put the correct number of gumballs in each machine!
