Can I get some cheese?

Wine cork
Stamping


This came about because my son likes to stand next to me while I’m cooking, I was making risotto and I opened some wine. He grabbed the cork and started banging it on the counter. The next day we added some paint and had fun. Open ended activities like these are so important they offer opportunities for free expression and foster a level of creativity that structured crafts sometimes don’t. By using novel things like corks it add some extra fun without constraining their creativity. Please use your best judgment and supervision if you are doing this with a child that puts things in their mouths, in that case try large sponges instead.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some paper, paint , a plate and a cork or 2.
  2. Pour the paint onto the plate.
  3. Dip your cork in and go!
