Make Your Own Stamps
Our family of six goes through about 18L of milk a week. (I’m thinking it would be beneficial for us to invest in our own cow, but not surprisingly, suburbia and bovine don’t really mix). Because of our large milk consumption, and also the fact that I don’t like spending a lot of money on craft supplies, I began collecting the milk bottle caps for our craft/activities box.
Milk bottle caps are quite a versatile craft supply and this will show you one way to use them in a fun craft activity.
Using some foam shape stickers (purchased from a craft store or a discount store) and milk bottle caps, it’s very easy to create your own stamps. Just peel the paper off the back of the stickers and place them onto the top of the milk bottle cap.
Set up some paints and some paper, and let your children have some stamping fun!
This is a simple, yet fun activity. It’s easy on the budget, also a great way to make wrapping paper, and is suitable for children of all ages.
