Ghost Potato Stamping
  • Potatoes
  • Black Paper
  • White, Green, Black, & Purple Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Knife
  1.  Cut the potato in half and use a pencil to draw/outline a ghost on one half and

    the word Boo on the other half. This step is optional, but I found it easier to have

    a guideline before cutting it out.

  2. Cut out the ghost and dig out 2 eyes and a mouth. Next, cut out the word Boo 

    and dig out 2 holes in the letter B and the O’s.

  3. Take the brush and paint white paint all over the ghost and stamp it down on

    the paper, then lift up. If you’d like, you can add a dot of color to the eyes and

    mouth. Repeat process with the word Boo.

  4. Wipe off the paint with a paper towel if it gets to be too much paint between stamping or between each color.

  5. Have Fun Stamping
