Hello and welcome to a new series I’d like to call “Crafting with Shit You Have Around the House!”
Because let’s face it…when you are on Pinterest searching for kid crafts, what are the odds that you have googly eyes, assorted colors of felt, and pipe cleaners?
Today’s craft, “Celery Prints,” comes from Laura Kapuscinski, mom of three and a friend of mine for twenty years.
- 1 bunch of celery (keep the stalks intact)
- rubber bands
- kid-safe (washable) paint
- finger paint paper or heavy-duty construction paper
- markers (optional)
Use your rubber band(s) to wrap around the celery…figure one stamp per kid or per paint color.
Make sure your rubber bands are tight so that they will not fall apart when you cut into individual stamps.
After you have banded your celery use a knife to cut into stamps. I recommend making each stamp about 2 inches long.
You can use a marker to draw a vase, stems or a garden to help your children get their creative juices flowing.
Dip your celery stamp into paint and stamp onto your paper creating gorgeous roses.
This makes a great gift to put in a frame for the grandparents OR you can even fold it and turn it into a greeting card!
