Easy, Fun and Imaginative Crafts You Can Eat

Arena Blake, founder of the blog The Nerd’s Wife, shares exciting crafts that are made out of your favorite things to eat. Never before has it been more fun to play with your food!

Bring out your inner sculptor with Marshmallow Playdough, and engage your artistic side with Coloring Book Cookies or Painted Rainbow Toast. Are you planning a party? Why not make Edible Taffy Balloons to decorate with, or party hats that are fun to wear and tasty to snack on? You can even transform your favorite snacks and treats into zebras, lions, giraffes and more.

Each project has a difficulty rating and lets you know if you will need a grownup to help you, making it easy for you to find the perfect project to spark your creativity using safe, nontoxic (and delicious) ingredients. So whether you want to build an edible terrace, blast off into outer space or make a cool wizard wand, Awesome Edible Kids Crafts shows you just how fun it can be to combine crafting and cooking.
