Making Vegetable Creatures

Our session today with Growing Chefs was a lot of fun!

We started by celebrating how well our windowsill vegetable gardens are growing! Not only are they thriving but . . . we got to do some tasting today. The verdict on arugula: “spicy”, “nutty”, “like radishes” and a “yuck!”

Arugula anyone?

Claire then read How are you Peeling? Foods with Moods to the class as an inspiration for making some vegetable art!

We appreciated the inspiration and happily selected from a variety of vegetables to create some odd vegetable creatures!

Raelyn created a zucchini sea monster!

Ashanti tried not to be too scared by the vegetable monster she made!

Hailey made a vegetable “guy” with a cool hairdo!

Carmen’s vegetable creature could stand by himself and was it just me or did he always seem to be watching us . . . ?

  2. Hi. We really love your vegetable creatures. Where I live, Sandridge, UK, we are celebrating 900 years of being a community. As part of that we are having a fun day on 21st June with a veg monster competition for ages 2+. We would love to use the picture of Raelyn’s sea monster on our advert. Would that be ok? We’d be so grateful.
