Edible Holiday Kids Crafts

December 6, 2012

Have a kid who is keen on being in the kitchen AND excited for the holidays? We’ve searched the web high and low for fun and festive edible holiday crafts for you and your children.

Fun With Frosty

Snowmen are fun to build, but it’s best that we don’t eat them. These cheesy snowmen on the other hand, are fun to make and eat too!

This cute snowman can be molded out of plain cream cheese.  Spoonful takes common household foods like pretzels, raisins and carrots to dress up Frosty. For more decoration details check out: http://spoonful.com/recipes/frosty-cheese-ball.

Edible Christmas Trees

Create a Christmas tree using your favorite veggies and fruits. Squidoo suggests using broccoli to create a tree-like texture. Try using vegetables that are in-season. Dark red roasted beets and carrots would certainly add a pop of color to your tree!

Instead of vegetables, Canadian Family uses fresh fruits to create this beautiful tree. Use holiday cookie cutters to make fun ornaments.  We suggest decorating the tree with local and in-season apples. Try using Granny Smith apples for foliage and Ambrosia apples to decorate.

Holiday Treats 

Martha Stewart brings us these two fabulous holiday dessert ideas – Christmas Cupcakes and Cookie Cottages.

These lovely Christmas Cupcakes can be made by stacking an ice cream cone on top of a cupcake.  A great activity for your budding pastry chef! For recipe and decoration tips, visit: http://www.marthastewart.com/951775/christmas-cupcakes/@hub/952629/countdown-christmas. 

Want a different take on holiday cookie houses?  Try building a stress-free yet, charming Graham Cracker Cottage.  Simply serrate graham crackers for the cottage’s  peaks and use royal icing or chocolate to glue the edges together.  Watch Martha Stewart herself, decorate one of these cute cottages: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjJKIJVPa6g.
