Potato Stampin'

Although the weather is starting to get nice outside it seems like we have a couple of really nice days and then it gets really cold. We, Carson and I, are itching to get outside and play in the sunshine, but until it warms up, I've been trying to think of some fun things we could do inside that we don't do every day. So, we decided to make potato stamps. All we did was take a potato, carve a shape into it (we did a heart for the clover and a rectangle), dab it in some paint, and stamp away. Carson had quite a fun time. We've done a couple of crafts with paints lately (we went and painted pinecones with a friend last week), so now he asks if we can paint. I thought this would be a fun thing to do and it wasn't overly messy...which is always nice! We decided to make a card for each set of grandparents for St. Patrick's Day. I thought they were pretty cute...and I'm sure they will love them!
