Printing with citrus fruit is a fun activity that makes use of abundant fruit and encourages familiarity with healthy food and nature.
Over the years I’ve done loads of vegetable and fruit printing with our girls. (Have you ever printed the base of a bunch of celery? Amazing!)
Owning a produce business meant we always had plenty of leftovers to play with. Time after time we’d try to print with citrus and it was great fun, but also rather disappointing.
You know when you keep doing something even though it’s kind of mediocre. Then one day on a Pinterest scroll I saw this nifty idea.
A clever person had carefully removed the fleshy segments with a paring knife, let the citrus dry out and ‘wallah’ cute citrus prints! (and me thinking for the millionth time “why didn’t I think of that!”)
Now I’d love to know what type of printing your children love to do?
