Fruit and Vegetable Prints
beautiful fruits and vegetables in a grocery store aren't just good to
eatthey have other interesting uses. You can design wrapping paper and
cards with prints from fruit and vegetables. Cut peppers or oranges in
half then dip the cut surface in the paint. Squeeze most of the juice
out of the orange half first, but be careful not to break the sections.
You can make cross cuts in pieces of celery or carrots to print crescent
shapes, circles, or ovals. Try printing a border to from a picture or
a poem you wrote.
For variation, try using colored paper with white or colored tempera paint
for making the prints.
