Keeping kids active and entertained during school breaks can be a real challenge, but what if we told you that you can do that with just a few simple and cute cooking and baking crafts? We've got you covered with these edible crafts that are not only fun to make but also delicious to eat. Check out our three different craft ideas below that you can enjoy with your kids.
Baking Fun Tips:
Choose the right rice: For the Happy Rice Friends craft, it's important to use sticky, short- or medium-grain rice, such as sushi rice. This type of rice holds its shape well and is perfect for making cute and fun rice shapes.
Use food coloring sparingly: When making the Rainbow Painted Toast, remember that a little food coloring goes a long way. Start with just a few drops and gradually add more if needed. Also, be sure to use food coloring that is safe for consumption.
Let the turnovers cool before cutting: When making the Turnover Dreams craft, it's important to let the turnovers cool completely before cutting them with the Cuisipro Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Makers. This will ensure that the turnovers hold their shape and don't fall apart.
Get creative with toppings: Don't be afraid to get creative with toppings when making the Happy Rice Friends craft. Use peas, corn, raisins, nori, or even finely diced and sliced carrots to create fun and silly faces on the rice shapes. Your kids will love getting creative with their toppings!
Have fun!: The most important tip of all is to have fun! Baking and creating with your kids is a great way to bond and create memories together. So, let your kids get messy, be creative, and most importantly, have fun!
