Printmaking for Kids: Cardboard Flower Stamps

Even old cardboard can be used to create beautiful art.

Spring Crafts Recycled Cardboard Flower Stamps


  • Supplies:


  • Scraps of thin cardboard (cut up your old cracker, facial tissue, cereal boxes)
  • Stapler
  • Foam craft stickers in spring flower shapes
  • Washable paint
  • Paper (or blank gift bag)

My children and I like to make our own stamps with craft foam stickers. Just cut a small rectangle of scrap cardboard and center your foam sticker in the middle. Then fold back the two sides to create a handle and staple once to secure. Pour some small puddles of washable paint on a plate and your kids will have a great time stamping pictures, cards, and gift bags!
