Pumpkin Potato Stamping

This pumpkin potato stamping craft was so easy and a fun craft for my two year old to do!

We used one potato cut into thick chunks and tooth picks to hold our stamps by. I've seen a lot of potato stamp projects that have you just cut the potato in half and using the round end of the potato to hold onto but we wanted to do a couple of different shapes without using a lot of potatoes.

My son is currently learning the alphabet so I carved out his name to use as well as a couple of other shapes. I really love the way his pumpkins turned out, next time we might put them on fence posts to go along with the Five Little Pumpkin poem!

We had a lot of fun with this potato stamping craft and hope you all enjoy it, too!!

White Chocolate Candy Corn Fudge

This Sunday at church I had my first candy corn in what seemed like ages, but was only a couple years. I had convinced myself that I didn't like candy corn, which is just non-sense especially considering the bag of candy corn I bought at Target on Monday is gone and Tuesday just ended. A lot of them were eaten before I decided I should try to make candy corn fudge, but there was enough for a small batch.

Hello sweetness!! This fudge is delicious, sweet, and only three ingredients. It takes maybe 5 minutes to make this fudge but you do have to wait for it to chill, so from the decision to make it to actually being able to eat it is around two and half hours.


1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
3 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup candy corn (chopped)


Prepare a 9x9 dish in advance by lining it with wax paper.
Add the sweetened condensed milk to a medium size pot and heat on medium until it starts to lightly bubble, add the white chocolate. Stir until the chocolate melts completely, turn off the stove and add the candy corn. When the candy corn is incorporated pour into the prepared dish and allow to chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before enjoying.
