|About our Life Cycle Stamps
|A set of life cycle stamps can be used over and over again! Make
a set for each bug you're learning about! Older children can
make their own very easily, and use them to decorate research
paper and to make visual examples on presentations.
Start by designing your stamp on the craft
foam. Use your pencil and press hard .
Make sure that your pressing into the
foam so that it stays indented.
Once drawn, cut out all of your life cycle
Glue your shapes onto the backs of a
piece of scrap wood. You can also use a
wooden cube, an empty milk carton,
yogurt cup or anything that has a flat
surface and can take a bit of pressure.
Allow your stamps to dry before using.
Stamp your image onto paper too see
how it turned out!
Align your stamps in a circle for your life
cycle and draw arrows showing which
step is next!
Then you want to ink up your stamp really
good. It takes a bit of pressure to get the
ink onto the foam.
Now you've got a great set of Life Cycle
Stampers! Hint: Use a diaper wipe to
wash off the stamp in between colors.
