10 Crafts Ideas to do with Vegetable Coloring Pages
Try one of these great 10 craft ideas with vegetable coloring pages and see how much fun still life can be!
1. Design an Original Recipe Card
A vegetable coloring page can be used to make a large recipe card. Have the children choose a simple recipe and write out the instructions on an index card.
Use a large piece of poster board in a bright color and trim it to the appropriate size. Attach the coloring page on one side, and the recipe card on the other for a nice gift for mom or dad.
2. Create a Home Sweet Home Sign for the Kitchen
Vegetable coloring pages can be used to make great kitchen crafts, such as a homemade sign.
Kids can easily trace the words “home sweet home” out of one or more coloring pages, and affix them to a piece of dark corkboard.
A string or piece of yarn can be used to hang the finished craft from a nail or from a kitchen knob or handle.
3. Make a Decorative Cutting Board
A fun way to preserve the completed picture is to use them to create a fancy cutting board. Take a plain wood or plastic cutting board and use adhesive to attach the page.
Use laminate spray for a protective coating, but make sure to use the other side of the board when it’s time to cut vegetables!
4. Design a Unique Whiteboard
Many kitchens have a whiteboard, so why not let kids make one out of a vegetable coloring page? Start with a stiff piece of cardboard and cut it to the appropriate size.
Glue white poster board to its surface, and then use adhesive to attach the coloring page on top.
Next, add a dry-erase sheet to complete a vegetable-pattern whiteboard which can be attached to your freezer door with magnets.
5. A Fun and Educational Project
A fun classroom project is to have children take their finished coloring pages and make a large chart or poster featuring nutritional values.
After each child is finished, he or she can cut out the design and paste it on the poster board next to an index card that states the nutritional value of that vegetable.
Not only is this fun for group projects, it’s educational too!
6. Make a Cookbook Cover
Most kids enjoy making book covers for school or notebooks, and the same can apply to cookbooks too!
If you have a favorite cookbook, preserve your child’s coloring page by using it as a cover. Don’t forget to place a laminate page over the top to keep it looking nice.
7. Decorate a Plain Kitchen Vase
Enlist your youngster’s creative help to make a plain vase more interesting with their completed vegetable coloring sheet.
Depending on the size of the vase, wrap the coloring page around vertically or horizontally, using invisible glue to affix it to the vase.
Put decorative grass, wildflowers, or pussy willows in the vase for an extra fun touch.
8. Design Homemade Placemats
Finished coloring pages make great placemats, and those featuring vegetables are perfect for this craft.
This craft can be done individually, or as a classroom project. Get plain placemats and use a glue stick or rubber cement to affix the finished coloring pages to their surface.
Laminate the placemat to preserve its appearance. Use these placemats decoratively, or flip them over for actual use to make sure they last a long time.
9. Dress up an Ordinary Clipboard
Use a vegetable coloring page to dress up an ordinary clipboard by pasting the finished page onto the board.
The page can be used in its entirety, or the colored vegetable can be carefully cut out to make it extra fancy.
Another variation of this craft is to attach the page to the inside of a folder as a fun and colorful liner.
10. Make Homemade Vegetable Seed Packets
It’s simple and easy for kids to make vegetable seed packets from coloring pages.
Simply choose a size, and download the appropriate template. The coloring page should be folded to showcase the best part of the art.
Fancy stickers can be added to the finished packet on which to write the type of seed it’s for. Of course, these packets can be used for all types of seeds, not just vegetables!
