Letter V - Vegetalbe Print and Venus

This week, letter V.

We made a painting using as brushes and stamps some vegetables. 
We used carrots, broccoli, peas, cauliflower, zuchinni, and a potato. The idea is to dip the vegetable into the pains and stamp them onto paper.
My daughter had so much fun! The lettuce was a BIG brush, the peas rolled and made a nice line. There are lots of vegetables and some have realy nice prints (maybe nicer than the once we used), so try it.
We loved the brocolli and peas pattern! 

I used a potato to make a stamp.  I cut the potato in half. On the cut face of the potato, I used a knife to carve the letter V. I cut away the potato surrounding the shape, so that it end up with an aprox. 1/5 inch shape. 

Here you can see the letter V print made with the potato.


Remember the coffee filter, markers and water activity (Umbrella)? Or the Earth activity This time we made Venus!

We colored a coffee filter with red, orange and pink markers. Put some water on it and let it dry...that's all!
