Homemade Stamps


Let’s upcycle some old wooden blocks into homemade stamps today! With just a few materials, your child will be able to create simple stamps that are fun and reusable. Have a holiday coming up? Use festive foam stickers to make a personalized card.

Materials Needed:

  • Wooden toy blocks
  • Foam stickers
  • Stamping ink pads
  • Paper

What’s Next:

  1. Gather your wooden blocks. We used old alphabet blocks. If you’re using abc blocks, have your child identify the letters and the sounds they make or have them pick only vowels {love the lessons}.
  2. Next, have your child peel, then stick the foam stickers on the blocks. Peel & stick is a great activity to help their fine-motor skills needed for preschool.
  3. Lastly, press the stamps into the ink {we only has gold and tan, bright colors would be more fun} and stamp away! Set aside to dry and enjoy!  C wasn’t so sure about the bird, lol!

    Hey Crayonboxchronicles,
    Thanks for the info, I need a toy, game, or activity that encourages intellectual development in infants (babies up to 18 months in this case). It will be done with a small group of infants, and any ideas would be appreciated. thanks!!
    Nice One!

      Hi Animilaki. Thank you! Some great activities for younger children is bag painting – use a gallon zip lock, add paint, seal it, hang it on a glass door or table. They can make designs, letters, and it’s mess-free and inexpensive. Another fun activity is baby sensory play/painting with food. Hope this help. 🙂
