What better way to make eating fun than to involve kids in the creation and try something a little different. Why not try out some of these great ideas.
Fun food is not just about cooking sweet biscuits and cakes. Fruit is colourful, sweet and packed with vitamins.
I love this rocket ship
that was created by Natasha Stewart and any budding astronaut would too.
You could even try a blind fold fruit game
to enjoy exploring new textures and tastes or create funny faces to brighten up a healthy snack time.
Watermelon is easy to use as it's crunchy, juicy but holds it shape when cut. A few wizard wands
can be created in next to no time.
Teddy bear toast
is a firm favourite in my house with two hungry boys.
Jazz up a party table with some unsual fun food decorations and displays. One of the most popular articles on MyKidCraft are these Mars Bar Race Cars
, perfect for a car themed party and traffic light pizzas
would be great too.
Chocolate balloon bowls
and ice fruit bowls
both make a unique display.
Display some marshmallow party pops
in a cup and they'll disapper quickly.
If you'd like to make the food part of the fun then let the kids decorate their own cookies
Kids love to get cooking and their kitchen creations can make the perfect gifts for Mother's Day or other celebrations. Why not try Mars Bar crispy cakes
, Valentine chocolates
, a sweet butterfly
or even try sending a birthday cake in a jar
Get into the spirit of big events like Easter, Christmas or Valentine's day. Easter bark
is simple and effective or have a howling good time creating banana gouls
, creepy crawly cookies
and chattering teeth smiles
Food doesn't just have to be for eating and it can be fun just to play with ingredients. When my son was younger, he was very taken with sensory pasta
What will you make today?
