Day 9. Today, the team are showing us how to make potato stampers!

It requires a bit of nifty knife work from us at the start. But once the small people are set up, we can leave them to dunk potatoes in paint and stamp happily for at least ten minutes. We’d say that’s the perfect amount of time to dunk a biscuit in a hot cup of tea.

What your small person just learnt

This is full-on ART – the kind you have to be arsed (ARTSED) to get stuff ready for. The reward is that whilst you were hopefully enjoying a hot cuppa, your kids were learning about PATTERNS, COLOURS and working with different kinds of MATERIALS (by which we mean potatoes).
