Sunday afternoon fun

Saee wanted tattoos. I don’t like those stick on tattoos that look great only for a second, and then leave ugly marks for days. They sit on tiny pretty arms and collect dust. They are hard to remove with soap too.

So instead, I asked her, what if she could have new tattoos everyday?

Of course she loved the idea, so I looked around in my house, gathered a few vegetables, and had fun.

We used okra, for obvious reasons. It makes for pretty pretty flowers. Stick the stem of okra onto the tiny forehead and you have a pretty okra monster as well!

We painted the cut end of the okra red with food color. And then we had fun stamping it.

We also used a drumstick. We made three cuts along the corners and spread the petals a bit. There you go.


We used a yellow food color to make a yellow flower stamp.

Lastly we used a carrot, and some green food color.


And stamped leaves. Finally we used a paintbrush and made some green lines for the stems, and tada!

And the okra monster ate the carrot and lived happily ever after!

Happy Sunday everyone!!!
