Step-By step instructions to create potato stamp Earth

Using a sharp knife, carefully carve a circle out of the potato. You can get creative and add continents or landmasses, but a simple circle works perfectly for a beautiful Earth.

Pour blue and green paint onto your tray or plate.

Young children can simply dip the potato into the paint and stamp.

Adults can paint patches of green and blue to give the appearance of land and sea from space, ensuring it coats the entire surface.
