These giant stampers are lovely and so easy for little ones to hold. Rose was napping and Daisy requested an art activity so I thought we would have a first exploration with Farm Adventure Giant Stampers. I have learned to let children explore materials before guiding an activity. This was unstructured play.
Daisy immediately began to make patterns. She said "Look mama, Herc, bunny, Herc, it is a pattern!"
Hercules, often known as Herc, is our rooster. She continued stamping and chatting about the animals, giving their names and explaining what they were doing.
She chose to use eight of the 10 stamps and we decided on a colour for each to avoid colour mixing. As you can see the colour of the stamp may have influenced her colour stamp choice.
Each stamp has a sticker of what will be printed, making it clear to see what you are printing. The handles are chunky and easy to grip. I will let Rose have a try next time we get the stamps out.
Daisy used a pen to add details and names. She likes to get me to write it first on a separate piece of paper. The trees were named 'Nick and Nack'. However on a closer look the 'trees' may be corn!
Playing with patterns again.
We left the exploration at that, rolled it up and stored it, to be played with another day. I have ideas...
