How to create a heart Stamp
Choose a big sized carrot and cut it into halves. With a pencil etch out a heart shape into the cut surface and carve away the surrounding carrot with a paring knife. Spread different colored paints into each of the paper plates and get your kids to print a chain of hearts to make the caterpillar on the index cards. But don't forget to blot the carrot on a paper towel before switching colors otherwise one color would spill into the other. After the paint dries, draw the legs, face and antennae with markers. Include a sweet Christmas message or dedicate it to the person concerned by personalizing it.
