If you’re looking for an easy craft project for Mother’s Day, food stamping is always toddler friendly.
And did you know that painted celery stamps make the prettiest roses? I got the idea from my son’s preschool, after he proudly held up his rose-splattered paper with a, “Look what I made for you!” smile. It was beautiful—and then surprising, when I learned the roses were made with celery.
Have your toddler stamp roses onto cards, gift-wrapping paper or just a Mother’s Day painting. And all you’ll need is some paint, paper and a celery stalk.
1. Cut the celery stalk down toward the base and secure it tightly with a rubber band. (Try and cut as straight as possible.)
2. Dip the celery into paint.
