this is likely one of the most classic activities…so satisfying. so many connections to the world of nature and science. we’ve been working with apples all week. tasting them, sorting them, graphing them, digging out the seeds, and then i deemed some apples “too yucky to eat so we can use them for painting.”
this is simply cutting the apple in half so that the star can be seen, then dipping in paint, then pressing.
and oh, joy when a seed actually comes out with the print!
we do this printing with celery, green peppers, potatoes, corn, okra, oranges, carrots too. i really like to get food that is genuinely expired or being thrown away.
