Try this super easy (and affordable) craft with the kiddos for an easy gift for their Valentine’s! I used a sponge to create a stamp that’s washable and kid friendly. Simply slide prints in an envelope to mail or display in a frame for a handmade keepsake.

This is a perfect use for Ikea’s $1.00 frames!

For paint colors, I chose fuchsia, gold and bronze.

{These two steps are for moms}

1. Start by tracing out your stamp motif with a sharpie

2. Using your sharp scissors ( I used my fabric scissors) cut along your sharpie lines to create clean edges.
