Food Fun:Kids Food Crafts
Welcome to my Food Fun:Kids Food Crafts section. Here you'll find easy kids crafts using edible arts and craft supplies. Most of the ingredients are common household items and these kids food crafts are quick to make and fun!
Peanut Butter Playdough
1 jar (18 ounces) peanut butter
6 tsp honey
Nonfat dry milk or milk plus flour to right consistency
Mix all together. You can decorate your creations with raisins, chocolate chips, coconut, etc.
Alternative to Peanut Butter Playdough
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup flour
Mix all together. This is great for kids who want the peanut butter playdough but are allergic to milk found in other peanut butter playdough recipes.
Applesauce Cinnamon Dough(nonedible)
1/2 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup applesauce
1 plastic ziplock sandwich bag
Pour cinnamon and applesauce into ziplock bag. Seal bag and knead until mixture turns to dough. Allow your dough creations to air dry for 12 hours or until hard. Suggestion: Use cookie cutters to make really great, very fragrant tree ornaments,or air fresheners. Roll out dough between two sheets of wax paper. Don't roll out too thin(roll out dough to 1/4 to 1/2 inch in thickness).
Edible Necklaces and Bracelets
Shoestring (long,thin) licorice, cheerios, fruit loops, marshmallows, and/or any other stringable food
Thread the cheerios or whatever stringable food you've chosen onto the licorice string. Tie the licorice strings together in a knot and there you have it!
2 Tbsp light corn syrup
4-6 drops food coloring
Mix corn syrup and food coloring together in a small bowl until well blended. This can be used with either a paint brush or as a finger paint.
Scratch and Sniff Paints
1 Tbsp unsweetened powdered drink mix
1 Tbsp warm water
Mix water and drink mix together. With this recipe you can paint pictures of fruit that will really smell like fruit. Allow finished paintings to dry overnight before scratching and sniffing.
Chocolate Pudding Paint
1 large package instant chocolate pudding
2 cups ice cold water
Whisk instant pudding and water together in a bowl for 2 minutes. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.This makes a thin paint. If you want a thicker fingerpaint texture, I just mix up chocolate pudding as per the instructions on the box or buy the canned ready-made pudding from the grocery store.
Vanilla Pudding Paint
1 large package instant vanilla pudding
2 cups ice cold water
Whisk instant pudding and water together in a bowl for 2 minutes. Refrigerate for 5 minutes. Divide the pudding paint into several small containers or a muffin tin and add different food coloring to each one. This makes a thin paint. If you want a thicker fingerpaint texture, just mix up the pudding as per package instructions or buy the canned, ready-made pudding in the grocery stores.
Jello Finger Painting
1 package jello
2 Tbsp hot water
Mix together in a small bowl being careful not to overmix. Let cool 5-10 minutes before using. Paint on tin foil for a neat effect.
