DIY a valentine card using veggies from your garden.

I am cleaning up my posts and came across this fun project from the past. If you have any beets in your garden they make great water colors for painting on paper. The colors are so striking too. A very bright purple/pink color. Just cut up some beets and soak in water, drain water into jar, get out some paint brushes and paint some pretty Valentines. Don’t forget to get the kiddos involved with this one. Happy crafting everyone.

Just a little extra tip on beets:

They are very nutritious, great for your brain, heart and digestive system, as well as possibly slowing down the growth of cancer cells, and the progression of dementia. Roast in oven until tender then eat up. There are all kinds of recipes online including beet hummus.

    This is such a fantastic and naturally creative idea. Painting with beets can be a fun eco-friendly craft for artists of all ages. It’s so amazing that not only beets are delicious to eat, but their colours can be retained in a way that will keep for quite a while in the refrigerator to use over and over again. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. Have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx
