A Fun and Easy Way to Use Celery to Make Homemade Prints!

These celery printed roses are an easy craft to put together that little ones will love. Not only is it a good one for making works of art to hang on the wall or fridge, but you can also use this to make thank-you cards, Valentine’s Day cards or even decorate bags.

Make sure you follow my painting board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own celery printed roses:

  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper
  • Celery
  • String (optional)

Cut the celery from about 2-3inches above the base (where the stalks are all joined). You will be using the base part to stamp, so you aren’t wasting the part you eat.  If you like a tighter looking rose then tie the string around the left over stalks to keep them together.

Dip your celery into the paint, wipe of any extra paint and then print away.

Use your paint brush to make the stems and leaves.

This activity may help with development of:

  • Creativity
  • Exploration of colours
  • The understanding that shapes can represent something else.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
