Stamp Art Using Nature

We made beautiful stamp art using nature today! This past week there was a beautiful day that we just had to get outside for. Who knows how many days like that are left until Spring.

So, we walked around the corner to a dead end to see what interesting things we could find. Of course the kids had to stop along the way to inspect a grasshopper and throw some rocks into a little pond haha.

By the time we were done, we had a wagon full of goodies to bring home! I was trying to think of how we could use our findings, and decided on making some stamp art using the nature we found.

The kids looooove anything involving paint. Plus it was extra cool for them to see how different items and textures leave different prints.

To make our stamp art, Lulu painted one side of each item and then placed it down on the paper. Easy peasy!

I had to show her a couple times to press down hard and roll it a bit, but she was able to otherwise do this entire project on her own. It was also a fun opportunity to teach her the names of each material she used!

A lot of time kids will get distracted and start doing their own thing during a craft. I don’t mind them doing that for the most part, but I do think it’s important they learn the discipline of following directions as well.

Something I really enjoyed about this activity is it was simple yet interesting enough that Lu stayed on task the whole time. She loved putting all the paint on and seeing the patterns all the different textures left. The resulting artwork looked pretty cool, too!

  1. This is a GREAT idea! I’ve done this with my students before, but I completely forgot about it! I’ll have to do it with my toddler this fall!

  2. This looks like so much fun! Going on a scavenger hunt from things that will look cool transferred onto paper and then the fun of dipping the things found in paint and making masterpieces. I am going to do this with my toddler this week!

  3. I LOVE this! Can’t wait to collect some fun pieces from the garden with our little ones and get stamping ? They would make the best Christmas cards (or wrapping) as well!

    1. Ooh I love the idea of using this for Christmad cards or wrapping paper! Especially if you used pine cones or pine needles. Great idea!
