Vegetable Prints

Printing with vegetables and fruits was a fun project for the pre-schoolers and for me. We printed with tempera paint. I made "ink pads" with damp kitchen sponges that had a thin layer of tempera on top. The children were encouraged to use all the edible choices and all the different colors, and to fill their paper with overlapping shapes. The little flower design was created with okra. All in all, we used artichoke, lemon, apple, okra, peppers and the base of a bunch of celery (not pictured). Any good shapes that I missed? I'm sure there is something obvious that I haven't thought of!
