The only thing kids like more than playing is playing with their food. Food crafts are a great way to get your child interested in cooking, baking, and food in general, so here is a list of 10 food crafts we love that will cure both hunger and boredom!
10. Creamed Honey Apple Dippers
This is the perfect afternoon snack and craft for your little one. Plus, it’s on the healthier side of things, so you can feel good about them stuffing their face with these delicious dippers!
8. Rainbow Bread and Edible Paint
While you probably don’t want to feed your child edible sugary “paint” every day, this is a fun craft that allows them to flex their artistic muscles. Not a fan of white bread? Try letting them paint on cookies, cupcakes, or pancakes!
6. Edible Marshmallow Slime
Slime is a huge trend amongst school-age kids right now. But a lot of the ingredients used in them can be toxic and damaging to little hands! The solution? Make it safe and edible! Kids play with their food regardless, so you might as well make an activity out of it.
4. DIY Rock Candy
Do you have a budding scientist with a sweet tooth? This is such a fun craft to do! I know I did this tasty experiment a few times during my childhood and always enjoyed checking on it every day for a couple weeks before enjoying the fruit (candy?) of my labor.
2. Rainbow S’mores Dip
This dip is perfect for sharing after dinner or on a family night. And it really brings new meaning to taste the rainbow!
