They also make cheap and fun stamps to make painting lots of fun.

Time: 5 minutes or less to make and as long as you like to stamp with.
Age: Under 5s
Level: Easy



Materials
  • Toilet roll tubes or other thin cardboard tubes
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Paper
  • Paper plate

  • Method
  • Cut slits around the toilet roll tube. You can experiment by cutting them at different distances apart and different depths.



  • Bend out the flaps you have created.
  • Trim the ends of the flaps into different patters. Keep it simple or a little fancier.



  • Put some paint on a paper plate or other suitable surface.



  • Your child can now dip the flappy end of the toilet roll tube into the paint and stamp away on a piece of paper.



  • You can have lots of fun trying different patterns and colours of paint. Perhaps you could try stamping onto a greeting card as an abstract design or turning it into a picture by adding a few extra details. The stamps would make great flowers or a sun.
