Green Salad Craft

Our final activity for our "Fruits & Vegetables" week was this fun craft!
LB likes salad, but he usually doesn't like a whole lot of vegetables in it.
So this was a fun way to show him how pretty & colorful a salad can look when there are lots of veggies in it!

  • Construction paper - Green, white, yellow, orange, red, etc.
  • 1 piece of white cardstock
  • Marker
  • Glue

Prep Work:
  • Using different colors of paper, cut out small vegetable shapes. Here are some ideas:
    • orange - carrots
    • yellow - onions or banana peppers
    • green - celery
    • red - tomatoes or red peppers
    • white - mushrooms or onions 

  • Draw a plate shape on the white cardstock and glue it onto another piece of construction paper:

Craft Time!

  • Hand the green paper to your child and have them rip it! The ripped pieces will be the lettuce:

  •  Next, give them the glue and have them glue the pieces onto the plate shape:

  • Then place dots of glue all over the lettuce and have them put the vegetable pieces on.
  • Lastly, give them the glue and let them just squirt it all over the top. This is the salad dressing! :)
