Ink Pad Kid’s Craft Fun


I am a sucker for bargain bins at the craft store… You know the one right inside the door with $1 goodies inside. I usually grab one or 2 things and throw them into my cart and figure, I will use them someday! This time, I happened to grab a few ink pads. They were really cute colors and I knew we would think of something. So here it is! Our ink pad kid’s craft!Ink Pad Kid's Craft-Grab your ink pad and have fun creating these fun designs.

My daughter loves creating art projects. This project gave her the freedom to create little works of art in whatever fun shape she wanted. Her favorite shapes were the heart and the zig zags.

What you need for your ink pad kid’s craft:

  • Ink pads. As many or few as you like!
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Scissors
  • Paper

Making your ink pad kid’s craft:

Cut your pipe cleaners in half and bend them into different shapes. If your kids are old enough let them design them. If they are younger you can create a few for them.

To keep getting silhouettes they need to make sure to put the white side down on the paper when stamping. However, once they have been stamping a while it might just get flipped. In this case, it creates another fun looking stamp.
Since the pipe cleaner is saturated in ink it leaves a darker shape! Which also looks really cool and is a lot of fun!Grab your ink pad and have fun creating these fun designs. This easy kids craft is fast to set up and will keep them busy!

You could have a lot of fun creating cards, bookmarks,  wrapping paper, or just create some fun art. The ink is so bright and vibrant that V really had a great time creating this piece. It was a bit mess, but worth every minute!

      I did tape down a large piece of paper under! It did get a bit messy, but it was fun. Check out the link to the toddler keepsake art at the bottom of the post. That one is a bit more controlled if you are worried about the mess.
