So I've been wanting to do this for a while and I finally got around to it with the kids. I thought it'd be fun to make a family portrait out of food to hang in the kitchen somewhere, and I thought the kids would get a kick out of using food as an art medium. It was so much fun!!
I couldn't believe how long it kept the kids' attention...they LOVED it! We just used bread for the face and then all sorts of miscellaneous food for all the facial details. In fact, the kids didn't even want to just stick to faces. Ellie's head has arms (out of her ears...so funny!) and Lu made herself as a whole princess.
When they finished their faces they took apart all of the pieces and assembled them into more creations for even more fun.
Now I just have to figure out where to hang our family portrait! This one's a keeper!
