Food Activity for Kids: Food Painting
Food Painting is a Blast!
You probably don’t often think about what it would be like to paint a marshmallow, but now it’s time to find out! Food painting is one of our favorite crafts for kids because it’s such a blast making edible art!
Any craft that involves both paint AND snacks is kid approved at our house! This fun frugal craft requires few supplies and minimal cleanup too which makes it mother approved as well 🙂
Step 1. Gather Your Supplies
To make your edible food paint you’ll just need to mix milk with food coloring. I really like the McCormick Neon Food Colors, they’re nice and bright! For a thicker paint, try mixing sweetened condensed milk with food coloring. It dried really pretty and shiny!
Once you have your paint ready, gather any foods you’d like to paint. We used marshmallows, popcorn, and bread. Maybe you could paint a peeled banana or a cooked pancake or something else? Let me know in the comments which foods you try to paint!
Step 2. Have Fun!
Let kids be creative and paint away! It’s also a great opportunity to teach kids about colors and counting too. Have them try to mix up some different colors to see what happens!
Also, get in there and do some food painting yourself! It’s quite a bit of fun and your kids will love to see your artistic abilities. Have fun with it!
That’s all there is to it!
Painting with food is a great activity for kids and it will definitely get their creative juices flowing! The best part about all of this is that once you’re done, you can eat your masterpieces! It may feel a bit wrong eating a rainbow colored piece of bread though.
