Edible Kids Christmas Crafts
First, we got in the mood for making crafts, but, because it’s the holidays and the most wonderful time of the year, we decided to make an edible Christmas craft! I know, I know… there’s sugar in these! Believe me, I am not one to encourage sugar consumption regularly or hand my kids sugary treats all the time.
This was a special occasion and it was worth it! I chose to sacrifice our “no sugar” policy to have a special time this holiday season with my kids. Once a year won’t hurt them. Trust me. 🙂
Homemade Christmas Supplies
- Christmas tree/holly marshmallows
- Snowman marshmallows
- Decorative toppings of choice (we got colored cane sugar, Christmas holly sprinkles and others)
- Whipped cream
- Plate (one per child)
- Bowl with a little bit of water (one per child)
The craft is made with the water and the materials. Your setup is easy. Simply put the sprinkles, etc in bowls. The child will take a marshmallow and with their finger, put a little bit of water on one surface. The next step is to decorate. The child can choose to put the wet marshmallow surface facing down into a decoration bowl so the water on it can make the sprinkles stick to the marshmallow.
Or, if your child is meticulous, they can add each and every element on by hand. The first method is the easiest and the quickest, but both are fun. Next, lay the finished (decorated) marshmallows on a plate to dry and to let the decorations still well.
Once the marshmallows are dry (5 minutes or so), put some whipped cream on a plate and let the child create their own Winter wonderland on it. The marshmallow Christmas trees and snowmen will stand upright on the whipped cream, which is supposed to resemble snow.
Admire the finished work, take pictures and then eat it up! This is the best part! 🙂 Enjoy and happy holidays!
