Ants on a Log & Celery Rose Stamps

Celery Rose Stamping

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.

Root of the Celery Stalk.. 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.

Rose Masterpiece

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?!

  1. Arrived here from Maureen’s page. I love the ants on a log! Such a cute idea. My son actually likes celery already but this will make him like it even more!!

    • Hi Lisa, Thanks for visiting.. hope your son enjoys the ants on a log! I just browsed your site and seems like your son is an outdoorsy kind of kid, so I imagine this is his type of snack :)
