Making DIY cardboard stamps

Now it’s time to get creative. We use the packaging of the dinosaur costume and dress-up set to make our own stamps. With these stamps your kid will be able to decorate the dinosaur in a fun and easy way. Janne went for an assortment of geographical shapes, you can copy those or get creative and make your own shapes. This way you upcycle the packaging into a creative and fun crafting project.

Painting with creative brushes

Morris started by using the home-made DIY stamps to make a pattern, his mom may have helped a little but that’s our secret right ;)? Then he used fun brushes like these to paint the tail, body and head of his dinosaur, around and over the stamps he already decorated?
