In our veggie stamping activity, the stems of red, green and yellow peppers are used as handles to easily stamp designs onto paper.
Choose peppers with long stems that will make the best handles.
Slice a top portion off each pepper. Remove any remaining pulp or seeds.
- We cut the red pepper to use the outer edge as a large round stamp.
- We cut the stem out of the center of the yellow pepper to make a smaller stamp.
Cut notches in the red pepper to make the flower petals.
Dip a pepper in paint using the stem as a handle.
Dip the red pepper in the red paint to make the flower petals.
Dip the smaller pepper in the yellow paint to make the pollen in the center of the flower.
Make a long swipe with the pepper to create the stem of the flower.
Learning through play
1. Use the smaller pepper to mix colors, then stamp on the paper to make a colorful design.
2. Observe the different sizes, shapes and colors of the stamps.
