Get arty with the kids with no expense to your monthly outgoings. Cupboard Makes area all about activities you can do at home which leave your money belts securely fastened. 

Stamping is a fun activity to do at the weekend or during the school holidays, and can be done indoors or out ... depending on the weather of course.

Flower stamps are so easy to do and all you need is:
  • Premixed poster paints of desired colours
  • Plenty of paper
  • Toilet rolls
  • Sticky tape or double sided tape
  • Surface to spread out paint


Using the stamp I'm about to show you can be super flexible as you can also create a rabbit using the same stamp. Just add eyes and whiskers!


How To Make The Flower Stamp

1. You'll need three toilet rolls for this stamp. To shape the petals, simply align your thumb down one side of the roll and pinch hard. The rolls are quite bendy but once bent they can pop back out slightly. This is okay as it will just add more character to the painting. Pinch and twist your toilet roll into a teardrop like shape and then repeat for a second roll.

2. Using sticky tape, or double sided tape, attach both of the bent rolls together and then on to your third, untouched, roll. It really is this easy! Spread some poster paint onto a flat surface, press the stamp into the paint, apply to paper and hey presto!

To get the result pictured I simply revolved the stamp around while keeping the centre consistent. You can attach more toilet rolls to make the job faster but I'm saving mine for more projects. 

Continue the painting session by decorating the petals, or leave the stamps to dry and then use crayons or felt tip pens for a colouring session later on.
