Get 'em young, train 'em well...

My 2 1/2 year old cherub stays with me a couple of times a week and we do stamping!  She has taken to it so well. 

 Ink up the stamp, 'you have to tap, tap tap it Nana'...

 She gets a little upset when an image doesn't come out clearly, so I showed her how to check if the stamp is all shiny with ink before she stamps and she remembers to do this each time, even it it's a week or two between stamping sessions.

Too cute is the look of concentration on her face when she stamps the image, the stamp doesn't get moved or wriggled, it's straight down, press firmly and then lift it straight back up again.  And....

Clean the ink off and dry it.   Then we pack all the stamps away in the little boxes.

Danielle is only stamping on sheets of copy paper for now, but I don't think it will be long before she graduates to cards!
