Last week I realized something. I had taught the children that the word stamp and/or print was different than painting with. 99% of the time when we paint it's with an object and there is no rule. When I realized that we had used corks to make the grapes earlier in the week, they had stamped with them. Wow! Seeing the look on their faces when they could "make" a shape with an object was like a new thing to them! So, here we go..veggie stamps! They were *amazed* when the veggies they eat with made shapes like, circles, ovals, crescents, flower, rose,etc. The classroom smelled like veggie soup that day!
**If you work with your children at home this would be a great idea for left over veggie scraps! Paint or Stamp with them! **OR, if you teach at a school....bring your leftover scraps from home into the classroom!
