To continue our Full Day Kindergarten’s focus on nutrition, today we painted with vegetables!
I brought in 2 potatoes, a cucumber, a carrot, a green pepper and a red pepper to class today. I cut them in half (the carrot I cut into thirds) and we used these like paint stamps to create a collage of healthy vegetables. I used large foil pie plates to put the paint in. Once the paintings were dry, I hung them up in the hallway so the rest of the school could see our beautiful art.
Another way you could do this art project is to use fruit. Next week, I will take in apples, pears, nectarines and a few strawberries and we can repeat the activity. Hopefully the children will like it as much as they did today!
