Today is St. David’s day! St. David is the patron saint of Wales and we celebrate on the 1st of March each year by wearing one of Wale’s national emblems - a Daffodil.
At Toddletown we love learning about the diversity of the United Kingdom and we also love flowers! So today we are going to create a ‘Potato Stamp’ in the shape of a Daffodil! There is nothing more fun than making beautiful paintings with our potato stamps!
First cut a potato in half, draw the shape of the Daffodil onto the surface of the potato using a pencil. Cut around this shape with a kitchen knife (adults only), leaving the design so it’s raised on the surface of the potato.
Pour some yellow paint on a plate and now we are ready to Stamp! It’s so easy!
The potato can be washed after use and used again with another colour.
This is a great activity for all ages, the children explore textures, colours, creativity and hand-eye coordination.
