This fake food craft is a fun activity for themes like community helpers and food. Pretend to be creative bakers by making trays of colorful baked treats out of dough or clay. Adult supervision is a must for young kids.
Prepare various colors of modeling clay or dough. If you want your bakery goods to harden and set into food sculptures, use air dry clay or make your own salt dough.
White frosting - dispense some shaving foam on top of the doughnut.
Colored frosting - place shaving foam in a bowl. Add a few drops of food coloring. Mix well.
Chocolate or strawberry syrup - squeeze some brown or pink colored glue. You can buy them from the store (e.g. Elmer's Color Glue) or make your own colored glue or colored flour paste.
If you used air dry clay or salt dough, let your food sculptures dry completely. It will take at least 2 days for the sculptures to air dry. You will need to turn them after a day or two for faster drying.
Regular clay or dough will not harden—separate them by color, if possible, before keeping them until next use.
