Break out the potatoes for our Potato Stamp Sailboats! Easy to make your sailboats in a variety of colors, this is a project that’s super simple summer potato stamping fun!

Make Sailboats with a Potato Stamp
To make our Potato Stamp Sailboats you will need potatoes, acrylic paint in an assortment of colors, blue cardstock, a white pen or marker, and scissors.
Potato Stamp Sailboat Craft Supplies Needed
- Acrylic paint – assorted colors
- Blue cardstock
- White pen or marker
Sailboat Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin with a sheet of blue cardstock.
Cut the cardstock in fourths.
Now, adult step! Cut a large potato in half. Then cut one of the halves in half lengthwise. And cut the other half in fourths. This will give you stamps for 2 boat bodies and 4 sails.
Pour the colors of paint on a flat surface. We like to use paper plates. Make sure there is plenty of space between the colors or they will mix. Dip the cut end of the boat body stamp in one of the colors.
And press onto the blue cardstock.
Then, dip one of the sail stamps in another paint color and press the sail stamp above the boat.
Finally, use a white pen to form wave lines across the cardstock. Also draw a simple mast connecting the sail to the boat.
