Cabbage Leaf Stamp Painting

Cabbage Leaf Stamp Painting

We have been talking lately about how veggies make good stamps when painting. Apples and potatoes are common, but what would cabbage leaves look like?

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. cabbage
  2. paint & paint brush
  3. paper
  1. My daughter came to the grocery store with me and chose a small cabbage. We talked about how the surface of the cabbage leaf might look covered in paint and then pressed onto paper as a stamp.

  2. So, my daughter set to work investigating by carefully painting some cabbage leaves and pressing them down onto white paper.

  3. She almost didn't want to look at the paper until she had painted and stamped a few times! Here she is painting her second cabbage leaf!

  4. After she pressed this one down, she stopped and finally said, "Oh, that looks cool!"

  5. Turns out cabbage leaves DO make a pretty cool stamp for painting! Have fun stamping!
