Yesterday, I decided to introduce paint-stamping to the kids, using vegetables. Thanks to my friend’s blog, it had evoked many happy memories of my childhood. I remember as a child, I used to bring lady’s fingers and lotus root to school for art projects and such, and I remember having a good time doing it.
So as I prepared the items, I explained to Ethan and Hannah how vegetables can look pretty too, and then I demonstrated how to make the paint. It was actually edible paint, as I used corn syrup and dropped some food coloring into it. The kids thought it was simply magical 🙂
They mixed the colors and made stamps of different colors, patterns and sizes. They filled up that one piece of mahjong paper with so much color, you’d just had to smile.
And they were so pleased to show Daddy their masterpiece when he came home…it’s still on our balcony, by the way 🙂
