We had such fun painting with edible paint and heart-shaped carrots for Valentine’s Day. Why not continue the fun for St. Patrick’s Day?
It’s always fun to cut open fruits and veggies to see what’s inside. I remember being amazed to find a star inside an apple when I was a little girl.
For Saint Patrick’s Day, clovers are the perfect painting project. Lucky enough, if you slice open a pepper you’ll find yourself a clover. You can obviously use any color of sweet pepper, but I thought green peppers were appropriate.
Once again, W had a blast not only painting with his vegetable stamps, but also eating it too. I love that this art project turns into a nutritious snack. I decided to kick it up a notch and whip up a tasty vegetable dip to use as paint.
It took me only two minutes to whip up the paint, while W spent this rainy morning painting away.

This completely breaks the ‘don’t play with your food’ rule, and I love it! What a fun, and awesome idea. Though he won’t truly understand it, I think my 11-month-old would enjoy this. Thank you so much for sharing <3
