Recycled Pool Noodle Stamping Craft

Recycle pool noodles into stamping materials

Eventually the old pool noodles need to be retired. What better use than recycling them into these great stamps! So when it’s too hot or too cold or too whatever outside set the kids up with these simple materials to create their own masterpieces.

Trivia:

The history of rubber stamps actually dates back to 1844. The process of ‘stamping’ existed many years before this. Brass printing stamps were first used to mark paper; while brass stamps on the other hand were used with wax to ‘seal’ private papers with the crest of the owner.
