Vegetable themed crafts that we did as part of our Vegetable theme. We started by revising the vegetable names that we already knew. Then classified them as underground, leafy, podded, creeper/climber & fruit vegetable. We spent a good 3-4 days on each topic, trying to identify them from our garden & doing craft accordingly. Today’s post is about the crafts that we have done.
Underground Vegetables: We made a soil set up using paper plate with underground veggies cutout such as carrot, raddish & beetroot. We harvested them & watched some carrot harvesting clips from Masha & the Bear.
Leafy Vegetables: We harvested some Spinach, ajwain leaves, Malabar Spinach, arbi leaves & Amaranth leaves from our garden. Identified the leaf structure & respective names. Picked some for leaf art & rest used to make dal.
Podded Vegetables: We made a pea in the pod craft using green thick sheet & crape paper for peas. it was a good finger muscle exercise as the crape paper needed to be crumbled & rolled to stay in shape.
Creeper/climber Vegetables: We had Ivy Gourd & Teasel Gourd creeper in our garden so noticed how they cannot stand stiff on their own& needed support. Observed its vines & made a pumpkin face mask out of paper plate as my son loves pumpkin from Peppa pig.
Fruit Vegetables: Made Tomato & Eggplant in Raised salt painting & some veg sandwich using tomato, cucumber & cheese.
We made India Flag using Underground (carrots), Leafy (cabbage) & Fruit (capsicum) vegetables. Used carved eggplant as Ashoka Chakra.
The last craft we did was a vegetable basket using paper plate and our favorite vegetables cutouts.
