For this activity I prepared the following vegetables for printing:

  • Bell pepper
  • Carrot
  • Celery Heart
  • Potato
  • Cucumber

Vegetable Stamping

These vegetable stamps were mainly made from the parts I would usually throw away, like the carrot tops. The majority of each vegetable was eaten! I spread out some paint onto paper plates (for easy clean up!), thinning any thicker paints with a little bit of water. Then the girls got stamping! Miss L (4.5yrs) chose to start with all the round vegetables first.Vegetable Stamping - art activity for kids

Miss E (6yrs) experimented with different colours and then discovered how cool the celery hearts looked!

After Miss E had finished her picture she decided to write her name on it, using the green part of the carrot top as a brush. I love the way she thinks!

The celery hearts made some of the best prints – they looked like roses!
