You've heard you're not supposed to play with your food, but this summertime activity is an exception to the rule. Make flowers and butterflies using green peppers, celery and other vegetables or fruits as stamps.

Materials Needed

1. Paint

2. Paper plate

3. Paper to print on

4. Green peppers and celery; other veggies or fruits are optional


1. Pour paint onto a paper plate.

2. Cut off tops of all celery stalks (leave attached at bottom).

3. Dip the top of the stalks in paint and place paint-side down on your paper to stamp a flower(s).

4. Use the side of celery stick (the side with two lines) to stamp the body of a butterfly near the flower.

5. Use the tip of celery to print the antennae of the butterfly.

6. Cut green peppers in half and dip cut side in paint. Stamp around the butterfly body to make butterfly wings.

7. Use other raw veggies or fruit to print patterns inside of the butterfly wings or to make flower stems and leaves. Good ones to try include okra, carrots, green beans and the bottom of an apple.
