Easy Kids’ Crafts – Dried Food Pictures

Activities For Children, Crafts For Kids July 6, 2018

I often make pasta pictures with my kids because it is a simple craft to set up and my kids have an obsession with gluing things. Today I was feeling more chilled out than usual about the clean-up, so I let them use other items too. (Warning: the clean-up was time consuming and not enjoyable.) You can use beans, lentils, rice, seeds, etc to make collages and pictures of objects. The girls wanted to make bunnies, spiders and a dolls’ house. This activity lasted a long time (a child’s long time, not an adult’s long time, ie, 25 minutes!)

Here are a few more ideas of things to use for collages and pictures: magazine cuttings, buttons, cut-up straws, cereal, shells, fabric scraps, cotton wool, tin foil, leaves.

The only problem with making these is when your almost three year old thinks that because food is involved, the pictures are edible. Oh, and that you can make hand prints with pva glue. Activity – 25 minutes, Clear up – 50 minutes 🙂

Hi I'm Keelan :) I’m a single mum of two. I like finding inventive ways to have fun with my kids, budget cooking, style and decorating and trying to squeeze in time for myself and writing :) I sometimes write for Vintage Life magazine and love 60’s music and vintage style.
