Homemade Stamp Pads for kids

Homemade Stamp Pads

Ink stamp pads can be expensive and the ink in them stains little fingers for quite some time! I thought I would try my hand at some homemade stamp pads! They were a hit and we found we could use them over and over!

Check out our video below on how to make your own stamps and stamp pads below!

To make your own you will need:

Homemade Stamp Pads


Plastic containers (I bought a set of 5 for $2 at the supermarket – you could also recycle takeaway containers too)



Pen (not pictured)

1. Take your container and place it on top of your sponge. Trace around the base of the container with the pen.

2. Cut around the shape with scissors.

4. Cover each sponge liberally with the paint and stamp away! (make sure you add plenty of paint so the stamp pads do not dry out).

    1. Thanks Jess! It will keep for a week for quite a while. If you are worried, you can place it in the fridge : ) Jenni x

  3. Im having trouble finding sponges that are thin without the scrubby stuff. How thick were the sponges you used and where did you buy them?
