Make beautiful, fun designs with the fruit and veggies you love (and don’t want to go to waste). It’s a timeless craft that is still just as fun as when we were kids!

What you need:

  • A variety of fruit and veggies! I suggest a bell pepper, a large button mushroom, an ear of corn, a piece of broccoli, an apple, a romaine lettuce stalk and a lemon.
  • Acrylic paint (for older kiddos and more permanent crafts) or washable paint (for younger tots and a sensory experience)
  • A piece of paper towel
  • A sharp knife (for parents!)
  • Paper or fabric to decorate

Slice your fruits and veggies in half! If using a lemon, make sure you slice and let dry overnight. For the romaine lettuce, slice the bottom of the stalk off, dab dry and use the flat end. No need to slice the corn, but corncob holders are helpful to assist in rolling the corn. The other fruits and veggies can be sliced and dabbed on the paper towel to dry.

Get some paint ready on a paper plate or paper bag. We used a grocery bag!

Press your fruits and veggies into the paint and choose a surface to stamp. I had a surplus of scrapbook paper just itching to be decorated. Notice the shapes that the fruits and veggies make. The romaine stamp will look like a flower. The broccoli stamp makes a great tree!

This is your child’s chance to really use their imagination. What can they create with these garden fresh stamps? If your child is really little, it’s a great chance to get a little messy, too!

Painting our veggies all kinds of colors!

Happy stamping! :)

I'm Emily! I'm a mom of (soon to be) 2 little girls, a writer and slightly accident-prone crafter that should probably only be allowed around safety scissors. I think that your imagination is your most dynamic super power, and sometimes, after 30+ years, I still think a little green man named Snarly Charlie just may live in my hair
