Rubber Stamps - For Teachers and Students


Once again we are reminded that summer is not long enough. It is the beginning of another back to school shopping season. New clothes, notebooks, pencils, and rubber stamps fill out the shopping list.

Teachers and students all have to prepare for another nine months of education. There is some fun involved every once in a while too. When the class has had their lessons for the day, it's time to develop some crafting skills. Children young and old get that chance to use their creativity in making projects, greeting cards, and seasonal crafts.

Rubber stamps come in handy in the classroom more than just for grading papers. Students alike have access to use rubber stamps on their projects. Stamping is a way to dress things up and to add a little personality.

There are many types of stamps that can be fun for boys and girls:

  • Animals. Everybody likes a caricature of jungle lions or giraffes.
  • Cartoon characters. Spongebob, Powerpuff, and Disney round out the top choices.
  • Sports. Baseball, basketball, and soccer to name a few.
  • Alphabet stamps. Great for identifying with student's names.
  • Seasonal rubber stamps. From Halloween ghosts to snowflakes to turkeys.

Limits on rubber stamping really do not exist. There is a style and design for everyone and the project they are doing. Rubber stamping companies are continuously designing new stamps for crafting.

Getting the most out of rubber stamping projects is having a large variety to choose from. Storage containers for all the stamps make them easy to find and clean up. Stackable stamp bins are inexpensive and don't require a lot of space.

Keep an open mind when shopping for the upcoming school year, and don't forget the school supplies that kids can use for life. They'll bring home projects for the refrigerator posting that the whole family will enjoy.
