New Year’s resolution #2: provide more arts and crafts time for my boys.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day. Use the base of the celery stalk as a stamp to make beautiful roses. Turns out the size of the celery root is perfect for little hands to grip and the pattern really does resemble a rose.
It was a super easy way for my son to make lots of home made Valentine’s Day cards for all his preschool friends, and he had a lot of fun doing it!
Idea from Maureen Cracknell and you should check out her site to see photos of her roses because they came out better than ours.
Maybe she had better celery?
Here are a few from my 4 year old:
Another pretty one.
And this beauty was made by my 1 year old.
All that stamping worked up an appetite and what better to go with a celery rose stamping project than some good old fashioned ants on a log!
A blast from my past, we used to love these as kids. I guess I shouldn’t have been so surprised when my son ate all that celery, but wow, why haven’t I made this snack for him before?!
- Creamy Peanut Butter (or Sunflower Seed Butter)
- Smother your celery with peanut butter.
- Decorate with ants, I mean raisins.
