making rubber stamps

About 20 years ago I taught a summer art program for elementary age children. One of the projects I remember loving was making rubber stamps. Back then I had to order the material for the stamp from an art supply company and we attached it to wooden blocks. But while walking through Michael's a few nights ago I found sticky backed foam & realized it looks very similar to what I had used. So today the littles and I raided our stash of lids to use as a base and I let each of them draw a heart. I cut a piece of foam to cover the top of each lid and then cut out the hearts and attached one on top. We're going to use these for a little friendship project next week. I'll try to remember to post an update.
