Can your child make vegetable stamps?

Come summer, come vacations.  Children are relatively free during this holiday season. IndiaParenting now serialises fun-filled activities for children that can keep them engaged during holidays and after-school hours. Here is the first in the series. Teach your child to make vegetable stamps! 

Ask your children to collect these items and supervise their use:

  • Any seasonal vegetable (ladyfinger, capsicum, potato, carrot, radish or baby corn)
  • Watercolour tubes
  • Knife
  • Sheets of paper
  • Small bowl
  • Paintbrush


Ladyfinger Stamp

Take a ladyfinger, wash and cut it into two halves. Squeeze some watercolour (any colour of your choice) from the tube in a bowl and add a few drops of water to dilute it. Mix the paint well with a paintbrush. Keep it little thick to get better results. Take a sheet of paper and fix it on a hard board. Dip the freshly cut face of one of the two halves of the ladyfinger into the paint. Once it is well coated your vegetable stamp is ready for use. Put its impression on the sheet of paper to get any pattern.  Let your child's imagination run wild with new patterns.
 

Potato Stamp

Take a big potato. Cut it into two halves and draw (with a ball pen) any design (e.g. a star, triangle, an alphabet or your name) on the cut surface. Cut off the unused portions very carefully with the help of a knife to retain only the desired shape. The carved end of the potato will show a colourful pattern when you dip it in the paint and stamp it on a paper.
 

Multiple stamps

Not just ladyfinger or capsicum, but most vegetables can give rise to interesting patterns. Even a cauliflower or radish can play wonders. For interesting and exciting colour play, stamp different vegetables at different places on a paper. The collage can yield great results.
To make the activity more colourful, use more than one colour.
Compare paper impressions of different vegetables on a sheet of paper.  The symmetry will leave your child amazed!

Come summer, come vacations. Children are relatively free during this holiday season. Teach your child some vegetable stamps: eg.Potato Stamp Take a big potato. Cut it into two halves and draw (with a ball pen) any design (e.g. a star, triangle, an alphabet or your name) on the cut surface. Cut off the unused portions very carefully with the help of a knife to retain only the desired shape. The carved end of the potato will show a colourful pattern when you dip it in the paint and stamp it on a paper. You can also make ladyfinger, capsicum and other vegetable stamps.
