Veggie Prints

At garden camp this week, the Cute Potato kids made homemade cards using sliced carrots, beets, eggplant, potatoes, and peppers as stamps. The counselors set up a simple working station with plates of tempera paint and colorful cards. MP enjoyed watching the kids create their own special patterns and designs.

MP especially liked the sliced pepper prints.

Some finished cards with fun patterns.

This is a simple project that can be easily set up at home. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can use backyard finds or some veggies from your fridge. Before long, your child will have a set of original stationery to use as thank you notes or birthday cards for friends and family.
