DIY - Magic Stamps

We love magic stamps!  These fun foam blocks can be re-heated over and over to create new stamps.  It's a super fun craft to do with kids!

Here's what you'll need (all supplies available at collage)

Heat Gun (a hairdryer will work fine too)
Hard objects to press into your stamp
Magic Stamp
Ink Pad (we used Versafine Clair)
Paper to stamp on

Heat the surface of the magic stamp evenly with your heating tool for thirty seconds.

Press the items firmly into the magic stamp, and hold for 30 seconds to create an indentation.

Ink your stamp, and stamp away!  

Wash your stamp fully after using, and re-heat to use again and again!
