Edible Crafts for Kids

I have three girls and we both work full time. When they are home it is nice to be able to keep them busy with some edible playdough, or a fun “build your own lunch” idea. It makes those yucky days more pleasurable.

Edible fingerpaint is really fun and only needs 2 ingredients for lots of entertainment! All ages enjoy this, even teens. A fun birthday party activity that is super cheap and non toxic so even the youngest guests can enjoy it.

How about making a fun treat…ice cream cookies to be exact that you can decorate however you’d like, thanks to Family Fresh Meals for this idea. You can use different colored dips with graham crackers as “brushes” to spread it on a paper plate and then they can eat when done.

  • How about constructing some penguins out of food for some inside fun, take a peek from Hungry Happenings to see how they did this.
  • If you’re itching to get outside, find an indoor playground in your neighborhood.

What food can kids decorate?

There really isn’t anything that is off limits for children to decorate, as long as they have been cooled and not hot to the touch. Baking cupcakes, cooling, frosting and allowing them to add edible candies, frosting drizzles or sprinkles is fun.
