Spring Art: Make Produce Prints

By Stephanie Morgan ; Updated October 17, 2017

Spring is the perfect time to experiment with using natural materials for creating art with the kids. One of the easiest and most classic ways to do this is to make produce prints.

To begin, pick your produce of choice. We opted for apples but potatoes, carrots, and the cut ends of celery bunches work great too.

Then cut your produce in half and gather some tempera paint along with a blank canvas or piece of paper.

The rest is simple. Just dunk…


..and lift.

Repeat the process over and over to create a graphic print. Kids will have fun experimenting with different colors, patterns and orientations. To extend the project further, look for more fun materials to paint with on a nature walk.
