Did you know that a rose hides inside every head of celery? Find one with your child in this easy printing project.


  • head of celery
  • kitchen knife (an adult's job)
  • white card stock
  • newspaper
  • sponge brush
  • red and green paint


Pretty Produce step 1

1. First, pull a stalk from a head of celery and set it aside. Slice through the head a few inches from the base.*

2. We used our celery stamp to decorate cards made from folded sheets of white card stock. Place the card on a folded newspaper. Have your child use a sponge brush to daub the cut surface of the celery with red paint, then press it onto the card.

3. Trim the end of the remaining celery stalk to give it a clean edge. Brush the end with green paint and stamp it onto the card twice for each leaf.


* The closer to the base of the head of celery you cut, the closer together the rose's petals will be.
