Edible Art for Your Child and You

For your child:

Using a simple colouring page as your guide, very very lightly draw out the design on a clean, large piece of craft paper. For this project I chose the beautifully designed, free and downloadable crocodile colouring page by Kate of Mini-Eco. Pour out a few varieties of breakfast cereal, and let your child outline the design. Once complete, let your child eat it up.

For you:

Use the cereals to create a pretty mandala. Let the mandala arise organically without a pre-drawn design. Once complete, eat it up.

The craft paper can be saved and re-used for other projects.

Note: Thoroughly wash your hands before tackling this tasty craft!

Now do have yourself a fine day, and I'll see you soon!

  9. I adore this idea. I'm definitely going to try this with my art-loving, picky-eater 3 year old! I spotted this on Ohdeedoh and I linked, too, on my other blog (ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com). Hope that's OK! :)
