This was named "Ink Pad Jungle" by the artist who created it.
Her sister's creation: Crazy GeorgeMax's contribution: Curious George and the Looney Bird Earthquake
Some cute neighborhood girls came over and I let them have free reign of the stamps and ink pads while I chatted with their mother. They created some beautiful artwork! I wouldn't have even thought of using the actual ink pads as an art medium. Small little ink pads like those you can find for about a dollar or so in the craft stores. Check the dollar sections. They always have stamps and pads.
Variations: Don't forget about fingerprint animals. Press a finger in the ink and press it on the paper and use that shape to create an animal.
Cost: Under five dollars
