- Canvas tote bag
- Large stamps
I had some farm animal stamps at home so we used those. If you don’t have stamps, I think this bag would look really cute just painted by hand. You child can make a design or paint their name if they are a little older. For younger kids, hand prints would be very cute.
I spread some paint around on paper towels that I placed on a tray. It’s an easy way to make a stamp pad using paint.
I imagined this project turning out all cute and pretty like my bag did. I did this project with two three year olds and a two year old so that wasn’t exactly what happened…
I wanted to demonstrate how to dip the stamps in the paint and press evenly onto the canvas bag. But before I knew what happened, the kids grabbed the stamps and just started stamping the bag willy nilly. I have *slight* control issues, so I was not too thrilled but I just let it go. It was a good lesson for me. We’re painting tote bags, not the Mona Lisa.
B was very funny. She only wanted to use the pig stamp. I kept offering her stamps with other farmyard animals, but she insisted she wanted a pig bag.
This is Little C’s bag. Can you tell which stamps she had help with and which she did herself?
The pig bag is nearly complete!
