0 Flares 0 Flares ×

If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.

If you’re a parent that yells “don’t play with your food!” all the time, imagine the look on your child’s face when they are encouraged to play with their food! There are many ways to add an artistic flair to different foods. Only a one of the end results is actually edible, but it’s really the creativity that’s the most fun.

DIY Ice Cream Play Dough

This play dough is edible (which is good, because it certainly looks delicious), though it probably won’t taste great. But the real fun is squishing the frozen ice cream dough anyway. Perfect for a hot day, or crank up the heat now and enjoy! Make sure to have some real ice cream on hand, you’ll definitely be craving the real stuff when play is over.

Veggie stamps are the classic food craft. I think everyone has had a ton of fun turning potatoes, apples, and other fruits and veggies into stamps. I love that these different ideas use the natural shapes and textures of the vegetables to create graphic prints.

Spaghetti Painting - Making Boys Men

Spaghetti is a pretty fun food by itself. It’s floppy, and squishy, and kind of looks like worms. So, naturally, every kid wants to play with spaghetti. Here’s a really fun way to use it for play!

The last project I’m sharing today is actually edible! Kids can eat a  little healthier if you let them make their food rainbow colored first. I’m thinking you can finally talk the kids into eating whole wheat bread if you let them paint on it.
