Make it: Speech Bubble Stamps

This is a creative, fun way for children and adults to leave sweet (and sassy) messages for each other.  Put them in snack bags, tape them to pieces of fruit, stick one on the mirror or in the cabinet.  It is a charming project that offers children practice writing words and sentences during the summer vacation weeks!

Materials:

pencil

carving block — rubber eraser or an easy cut carving block such as a Speedball Speedy Carve Block

carving tool — X-Acto knife or linoleum block carving tool will work (to be used by adults or with adult supervision!)

ink pad

card stock paper

thin black art marker

How to:

1. Use pencil to draw the shape of a speech bubble onto the carving block.

2. Use carving tool to cut along the pencil lines. (This step should be completed by an adult or with adult supervision!)

3. Dip the new speech bubble stamp into the ink and press firmly and evenly onto a piece of card stock.  Repeat.

4. Set aside to dry

5. Once dry, use art marker to write messages inside the bubbles.

6. Place them in fun places

Cheers!
