There are endless possibilities when it comes to printing. Many found objects make great prints…food, toys, bubble wrap, shoes, blocks, etc…so for this activity we used CELERY!
The cross section of celery resembles a rose. How cool is that?! These beautiful prints would be a great activity for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or gifts for family.
See the easy steps below!

Step 1: Cut your celery
I cut the ends off of two bunches of celery (this does not waste food! The ends are typically not used anyway and the stalks can be saved for later). I tied a rubber band around them just in case they loosened or wiggled a little when printing.
Step 2: Prepare your paint
I poured a THIN layer of red and pink tempera paint on a tray and let the girls begin stamping the celery onto a piece of art paper.
Isn’t that so pretty? I love how beauty can be found in unexpected things.textured paper we made from another project.
Pin for later!
