Something a little bit different in art today; we would be using parts of plants that we can eat! And don’t worry – not one carrot was wasted!
A peek inside the shopping basket revealed polished red and yellow peppers as well as a long slender cucumber. Fruits.
And then there were seed-containing green beans.
As well, we had some roots (in the shape of carrots) stems (celery) flowers (broccoli as well as a cauliflower) and leaves (parsley).
Our task was to use the washed and sliced fruits and vegetables to make funny faces. Sliced rounds of carrots could be used for wide-awake eyes, with broccoli and parsley as a mop of crazy hair. A slice of pepper would make a perfect broad grin.
Or how about using bendy beans as curved eyebrows…..
or a knob of cucumber for a nose?
The leaves snapped off a celery stalk would make a closer crop of hair…..
and why not fashion a moustache from the rest of the stem?
Yours truly had to be pretty fast at snapping the results; it being almost lunchtime, hungry children found it rather hard to resist nibbling at the odd ear or smile…..
PS Next stop a Swiss version of this perhaps!
