Fun and Creative Vegetable Painting

The theme given for the September #CCBG Craft Challenge is Kitchen themed crafts/DIY and this got me thinking. A few months ago, my little one and I had lots of fun randomly trying vegetable printing.

Here’s a step by step creative art idea using Okra (lady’s finger) which is lots of fun for little ones to try.

Material required:

  • Okra
  • White Paper or card stock
  • Paints (Poster Colors/ Tempera/ Acrylic)
  • Brush and pallete
  • Tissue paperccbg_atb1

Step 1: Paint yellow using long horizontal strokes across the lower half of the sheet of paper.ccbg_atb2

Step 2: Paint light blue using long horizontal strokes above the yellow strip.ccbg_atb3

Step 3: Paint green grass using vertical strokes above the yellow strip as shown:ccbg_atb4

Step 4: Cut the Okra in the middle and pat it dry with a tissue paper, then dip it in paint and it’s ready to stamp onto paper.ccbg_atb5

Step 5: Stamp the okra ‘flowers’ at the tip of the green stokesccbg_atb6

I also tried creating ‘A valley of flowers’ using the same technique.ccbg_atb8

This activity will help teach your child to use interesting materials to create beautiful prints and ensure that your child finds innovative ways to express himself through art.
