Vegetable painting

I remember this from when we were in school - using vegetables dipped in paint to make stamps on paper.  So one hot sunny afternoon - we moved our table outdoors and I got little miss J to paint using some okra and french beans.

 Cut the top of the okra off and it makes a lovely 'flower' stamp. 

Then she mixed a few colours and they actually turned out really pretty.

Here she is trying to use a french bean which I cut at a slit so she could make some 'leaves' - but she didn't quite get the hang of it.  My little Picasso still managed a little masterpiece though :))


  1. Oh lovely. Looks like your little one had fun!

  2. That's awesome:) I remember doing it with potatoes and peppers! I'll try it soon. For now I'm just happy that Marília is learning to use the brushes instead of her hands:)

  3. Love this!1 You should try celery it makes a beautiful big flower:)

  4. This looks like fun! I love messy projects.


I love hearing what you have to say! Please take a minute and leave a comment!
