President’s Day Kids’ Stamp Craft
Get crafty on President’s Day with this kids’ stamp art activity. Your child can create their own over-sized presidential stamp, celebrating some of history’s most notable figures. Start by choosing a president. If your child isn’t sure who to pick, take some time to research past presidents. Look online for bios or read age-appropriate books that feature, Washington, Lincoln and some of American’s other leaders. Your child doesn’t have to make one stamp. They can make several, choosing multiple presidents.
Arts and Craft Materials
- Card stock paper
- Markers or crayons
- Construction paper
- Clear-drying school glue
- Draw the presidential portrait onto the construction paper. Your child can use markers or crayons (or another writing tool, such as colored pencils). If your child isn’t exactly sure what the president looks like, use a book, photo or picture you find online as inspiration.
- Make sure that the construction paper portrait is smaller than the card stock paper. Have your child cut a scalloped edge around the card stock.
- Glue the construction paper onto the card stock to complete the presidential stamp craft.
Keep crafting! Your child can make a series of overs-sized stamps to display for President’s Day.
