Default I stamped with DD who is three.

I do stamp with her but it usually entails her stamping with $1 store stamps and me cleaning them as we go or me biting my nails and watching her every movement while she stamps with my SU stamps.
Today was such a rainy day that she was just going crazy inside. She is not a good one to pick up her toys yet but we are working on that. After diner we made Rice Crispy Squares. That was fun. After snacking on them, I asked her to pick up all her toys. And she did! I was so shocked and there was an hour before it was time to get ready for bed so I took out the stamps. She was so carefull with the stamps and was cleaning them after each use so I pulled out the LetterPress Alphabet. She had a ball. She was so carefull that I was able to stamp too. I ended up making a card that I think is my best one to date. It was so great.

So sweet that you got to spend some nice time with your DD.
I have DD's 6,4,2. I just keep my inks away from them because I don't want the colors to mix). They have thier own inks ($1 store variety). And I get out a box that has the M's $ stamps in there and let them loose. I even let them use my stamps too. I don't care about stained wood, and stuff like that. They liked the alpha sets alot- they can spell out words. Most of the time, I find that they stamp for a short while, then go off to do something else, leaving me to stamp on my own .

I read on a thread somewhere a while back that the poster let her child stamp with versamark and then use chalk to "color" the versamarked image. I'm thinking about actually trying this with my DD; at least I won't have to worry about her getting ink all over the place.

Chalks is a great idea. If DD wasn't so anal I would do that too. She is very particular and never mixes the inks. After each stamp she MUST clean it with a baby wipe. I don't really want to discourage the cleaning if she's using the same color for fear of confusing her. We used chalks last year and she needed a new q-tip for each use and that was starting to drive me crazy. She's always loved my stamps and I've always withheld so now I use stamping as a reward.

I've been stamping with my little girl, who is now almost 4, for the last year. She has her own inks, but I have no problem letting her use my rubber stamps. Which reminds me, maybe we can do some stamping tomorrow while little DD is napping.

Ahh, my kind of story, very cute!

One of the ladies I teach stamping to should take a lesson in careful...rock and roll technique...purple wood on every stamp she used!

I hope you stamp often with her, she'll be off to college a lot sooner than you think!
