Stamping with Bottle Caps is so much fun. It's such a sensory experience, as the bottle cap slides around in the paint. For this activity I've used the closed side of the bottle cap, but using the open side is just as fun. If you don't have any bottle caps you can also use Corks, Small Foam Stamps, or even cardboard tubes.
Purple (or Green) Tempera Paint of your Choice
Paint Trays (*These are optional but are worth the investment)
1. Apply a light coat of paint on the tray. Use a paint brush to spread it if necessary.
That's it! The process can also be used for created flowers, balloons, or
just open ended Art Projects. Happy Stamping!
