Food art for kids is perfect for summer creativity, as kids can build it themselves! Get inspiration from these fabulous ideas!
Carisa here, from Messes to Memories. It’s been a while since I have shared a fun post. We had our third baby a couple months ago and I’ve been slowly trying to get back into the swing of things. Managing three kids can be a challenge. But today I’m sharing some really cool food art ideas for kids!
Have you seen any cool food art recently?
Super cute… right? You are probably thinking it’s way too much work. Not so. Show your kids a couple cute pictures, set out some ingredients and let your kids make their own food art.
Summer is the perfect time to let your kids play and experiment with their food… something that you probably never thought you would do!
Not only is it great for the kid’s imagination. there are endless learning and teaching moments you can have while playing with food. You can demonstrate what you learn about animals or the environment.
It is also a great way to get those fruits and veggies on the plate. After they are done making a cute little frog or an underwater scene, they will be so much more excited to actually eat the fun fruit.
