Potato Stamps- Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

This activity was so much fun…it started out as potato stamping and turned into my little children turning into little green Leprechauns as you will soon find out.
 I sliced the potato in half and used a knife to carve out the shapes.  I let my daughter pick the theme and she asked for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  
I filled one cup with yellow paint and the other with blue.

 We talked about constellations and the Little Dipper. 

This turned into a beautiful birthday card for Pap Pap
We wrote on it:
“Twinkle Twinkle Little Birthday Star” 
Then this mommy made a huge mistake of running to the bathroom and came back into the kitchen to see this…

 Someone thought it was a good idea to turn themselves GREEN!
 It made some really great hand prints.
Look at her hands!  She was running around the house saying she was the Grinch lol. I was seriously freaked out when I saw these.  The paint dried so fast (thank goodness. or I would have put down the camera).  Now when I ask her what colors make green, she knows and answers with a huge smile.
Needless to say, this turned into an early morning bath.
All I can say is they had fun 🙂
