Doing different craft activities can be difficult if you have a toddler like mine who insists on putting everything in her mouth. You’d think one little taste of the glue and she’d be running for some water – nope not this child – she would chug it until I took it away. To prevent lots of arguing between her and I during craft activities, I try to do lots of activities that are actually in fact edible.
- marshmallows or popcorn
- milk or for a thicker paint, try sweet evaporated milk
- food coloring
Directions: Make the edible paint by mixing milk and food coloring together. I usually use my muffin pan to keep all the colors separate. Then get a clean paint brush and paint the food. After painting the food you can let it dry for a pretty snack later, or if you’re like my daughter you can eat it right away.
- 1 C creamy peanut butter
- 2 C powdered sugar
- 1/2 C honey
Directions: Just mix it all together and ta da, your ready to play! I usually give Grace different cookie cutters, rolling pins, etc. to play with. By the end there usually isn’t a lot of playdough left, but if there is you can just put it in Tupperware to save for later.
