Edible ink is tasty, pretty, and absolutely fun.

Edible ink has definitely a WOW factor with kids. Easy to do edible ink art and healthy snack ideas have been released on Kids Activities Blog. Making edible ink is tasty, pretty, and it is absolutely fun.
The recipe for edible ink is simple. Begin by emptying and cleaning a few glue bottles. Choose one small box of jello for each color. Boil about 1/4 cup of water and have 1 small glass bowl for each color. Other materials are a fork or whisk, a funnel, and some wax paper.
Use at least two different boxes of jello. Let the jello mix completely dissolve. After the bowls are filled with ink let them sit for another few minutes. Let the ink cool down enough to pour into the glue bottles without melting them.
The ink should be the consistency of honey. If not, then wait longer for the mixture to cool down. Let the kids have fun painting on the wax paper. Once the art is completely cool, peel off and have fun eating.
Everyone feels better when eating healthy foods. At snack time, kids seem to be more receptive to healthy food that they might not accept at dinner time.
A simple snack idea is putting fruit or other vegetables in the holes of the swiss cheese. Another fun idea is sticking cheese slices onto a pretzel spear. Making pizza face crackers or eating a traffic light looking snack are some of the super creative ideas.
Simply cut a red and yellow tomato and a green grape and place on top of a rectangular piece of cheese. The kids will enjoy eating their very own traffic light.
Another great idea is a cheese waffle with blueberry dipping. Making cheese butterflies is easy and will turn any boring snack into a hit.
