Posts Tagged ‘how to make fun kid food

For today I thought I might do a basic how to for faces using the basics from my kitchen.  People assume that I spend a lot of time making the kids’ lunches.  I don’t, and this is how to make things simply and fast.   I used a set of circle fondant cutters at the top left, on the right side are 3 biscuit cutters and the tools, a sharp paring knife, a straw and a vegetable peeler.

Cut out two pieces of bread with the larger circle cutters.

Next I peeled a strip of cucumber skin with the vegetable peeler, and use the straw to poke 2 small holes for the pupils of the eyes.  I used the smallest fondant cutter for the whites of the eyes and then a small dried cranberry (raisins work well too) for the nose.

To make things like eyes and noses stick to the bread, I use honey, agave nectar, cream cheese or a peanut butter substitute since the girls’ school is peanut free.    I used one of the circle cutters to cut a mini carrot into hair pieces and the mouth.  You can also grate a carrot for hair.  I sometimes use leftover spaghetti for hair as well.

And TA-DAH!  It’s a boy.  Add 2 more carrots on the side for a girl.  I used a crinkle cutter to cut the edges of the hair.

I did this all in under 10 minutes.  I also use the facial features as a way to get my kids to try something they may not normally eat without wasting a lot of food.  Now it’s your turn to try!
