Get Emotional Over Funny Food
Don’t be sad, because you think only an artist can create funny food.
Be happy, because whatever you make is ok. It’s not going to hang in a museum.
Even a face made from a peel is appealing.
Here are some very simple easy-to-follow photos for making any food. There are many more in our book “Funny Food”.
Use simple, healthy ingredients and have fun!
When you get the hang of it, try some more complicated images.
Bill was inspired by some cantaloupe peels.
Look how many different faces you can make by just moving the same peels around.
Using these three cantaloupe plates you can teach young children to recognize different feelings –both on the plate and on someone’s face. They can also look in a mirror and make faces that express different emotions. If they don’t have the words to describe their feelings, this could be a good time to add language to match the faces they make.
Discuss with the child what emotion a face is showing - happy, sad, angry…
Put a determined look on your face and say, “I can make Funny food.”
