My mom requested I carve her a stamp of speech bubbles. She has been doing work in my kids' classroom on writing, one area where Montessori falls a bit short, in my opinion. She has been having the kids, the boys especially, writing comics. With W, drawing is much more favorable than writing so she has started them drawing a scene and then writing about it. Sneaky teachers.
I used a Yellow Owl Workshop double sided Carve-A-Stamp block. The rubber was a bit harder to carve. But it is such a fun option for carving your own stamps. This speech bubble would be super fun to use to customize gift shop postcards or stamp over photos you take on an adventure.
