Citrus art! A fun new activity you can do with the kids.

Citrus printing

You will need:

  • Any kind of citrus (lemons, limes, clementines, oranges) The smaller the citrus the easier for little hands to hold.
  • Non-toxic paint. Tempera works well.
  • Paper
Directions:
  1. Mix up some fun bright colors of the paint. Cut each piece of citrus in half. Lemons and limes work well.

  2. Take the half lemon and paint on some color with a paint brush. Place the lemon on the paper and press.

  3. You can use different colors and create a fun bright piece of artwork.
