So, the kids don't want to eat their vegetables? Maybe it's time to make eating a whole lot more fun. What kid wouldn't love to eat off of a super silly Sharpie funny face plate? Transform a regular old plate into a silly face plate. The kids can even create their own plate.
First thing's first, you need a plate. We picked ours up at IKEA, they cost $2.50 each. I'm sure a plate from the dollar store would work too. The only caveat is that the plate should be a single colour, that way your design will show up nicely and the food will provide all the colour you need. Make certain that your marker is a permanent marker - washable markers will rub off on the food.
Once the face is drawn, place the plate inside a 400F oven, directly on the rack. Bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and let the plate cool completely before removing it from the oven.
How cute are these plates!? Who could possibly resist eating the fruit and vegetables that decorate these plates? Let your child take ownership of his own design and creation and watch him eat happily.
Who said that we shouldn't play with our food?
