I was cutting celery the other day and my 4 year old kept saying, “It’s a flower.”
I couldn’t figure out what she was talking about until she pointed to the end I cut off and said we could make flowers with it.
We got some paint and paper and got to work.
We just poured a little acrylic craft paint onto a plate and dipped the cut-off part of the celery stalk into it. I had to trim a few of the celery pieces down a little bit so it didn’t transfer as one big blob.
We stamped away and then washed it so we could layer our flowers with a different color.
That gave us this look.
We put them into frames and are going to enjoy them for a while 🙂
So, next time you cut some celery, leave a little time for crafting afterwards 🙂 This is a great way to make use of your scraps and have a little fun with your kids (or by yourself!)
