Palm Tree Celery Painting {Tutorial}

A Crafty Arab Palm Tree Celery Art TutorialUsing celery as a paintbrush is unusual and allows children to look at old things in a new way.  We used this unexpected new technique to paint a palm tree.

 

We used green paint for the palms and brown paint for the trunk. You can use more than one stalk to paint, or just flip your ends around for each color.
