To make your own, cut a teardrop-shaped stamp from the bottom of a carrot, and invite your child to stamp all over a sheet of white paper to her heart’s content. We love our Melissa & Doug Jumbo Stamp Pads for this!

Next, add some wiggle eyes to each drop. No wiggle eyes on-hand? Try drawing eyes with a marker or dipping a cotton swab in some black paint for the eyes.
