Today we painted with green peppers.
This is a wonderful little process art project for kids – bell peppers make a great St Patrick’s day paint stamp activity!
We painted with the top and used the rest in our dinner!

Emma found the pepper slippery in her little fingers, but used the stem to hold onto, make sure you buy one with a bigger stem at the top!
She also found it very funny that we were eating our ‘stamp – stamp.’
I learnt something new!
A male green pepper has 3 sections – like the one we used today – perfect for creating a shamrock.
Female green peppers have 4 sections – perfect for printing a lucky 4 leaf clover!
