Recycle cardboard tubes into crescent and star shaped stamps! These stamps only take 5 minutes to make and kids of all ages will enjoy crafting with them. Have kids make stamped drawings to hang up on the fridge or stamp on gift tags, greeting cards and favour bags. Purchase a roll of purple kraft paper and kids can make their own stamped gift wrap for Eid. For classrooms or daycares, roll out the sheet of purple kraft paper and get all the kids involved in stamping crescents and stars on the sheet. Then, hang up the the celestial masterpiece on a classroom wall as a mural!
- 2 cardboard tubes
- Purple paper
- Gold acrylic paint
- Paper plate
- Shape one cardboard tube into a crescent shape and the other into a star shape. Be sure to shape both ends of the tube, making line creases all the way down the tube, otherwise the shapes won’t form. Watch how we shaped the tubes here. One side of the tube will always look better than the other – use the side you like best for stamping.
- Pour some gold paint onto a paper plate and have kids stamps the shapes onto purple paper.
TIP: Small children like 2 and 3 year olds might grip the stamps tightly, so consider making extra stamps. If any of the stamps lose their shape, the fun can still continue.
