Vegetable Collages

With our garden bursting forth with all sorts of yummy veggies, we decided to make a few to decorate the house with.  In preparation I went through our scrap box and found/cut little bits of paper, ribbon and anything else we had in four colors- red, green, purple and orange.  I then drew the outline of a red pepper, zucchini, eggplant and carrot on card stock.  Eva started out by sorting the bits of scraps into four piles according to color.
Next she selected a vegetable and filled in the outline with her glue stick and added the appropriate colored scraps.  Here's the zucchini
the eggplant,
the carrot,
and the red pepper.
When they were dry, I cut them out and we added stems and now they are hanging on the "vine."


  1. These are so cute. Your litle girlie is so good at gluing. I have been on your blog a bit and I love all the things you come up with.


  2. What a great color sort activity! It turned out so beautifully!

  3. I have been looking for a cute craft for when we do V is for Vegetable. Thanks!

  4. Adorable! I'll have to try this.
