Spring is in the air, friends! Let’s bring some of those flowers inside so we can welcome this warm-weathered season into our homes!

What you need:

  • Fabric or acrylic paint
  • Sponge
  • White paper or cloth napkin
  • A bunch of celery
  • Paper plate
  • Knife (to be used by an adult or with assistance by an adult for the student)



Step 1:

Gather your materials!

Step 2:

Cut off the stems of a celery bunch. You’ll be left with the root of the celery and a few individual celery pieces.

Step 3:

Squeeze out some colours of paint onto a paper plate. (Use any colours that make you think of Spring!)

Step 4:

(Cover your work surface with some material so that the paint does not bleed through) Lay out your napkins on your work surface!

Step 5: 

Use your sponge to apply paint to your celery!

The bottom of the root can be used as the flower.

The bottom of the stem can be used as leaves.


Step 6:

Stamp your napkins to create your flowers, let it dry and then you are done!

Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Nina graduated from the University of Winnipeg with a BA in French Language, Literature Studies and the Certificate French Language Proficiency Program at McGill University. Currently, she studies public relations at Humber College. Her passion for working with children began at a young age through the Ukrainian community’s leadership program and coaching rhythmic gymnastics for the past nine years. Through working with students that have faced the difficulties of learning a different language, or the training hardships that her gymnasts faced, Nina believes that best practices come from learning resilience. Recognizing and understanding each student’s learning style and finding techniques to help guide them to their own personal and academic successes is a value that Nina believes will help promote the principle that education is a journey and she hopes to be a supportive influence of that.
