So, I'm not the world's best baker. But, I love making cupcakes. Not just your run-of-the-mill frosted cakes. But, instead more cutesy desserts. Given my serious lack of cooking skills, I feel like I have to make up for being a kitchen klutz with at least some creativity.
A few years ago -- after watching one too many Food Network shows -- I decided that I could in fact make artistically awesome cupcakes. Of course, I couldn’t. But, what I did discover is that those little cakes sure do make a cool canvas for edible artistic creations. This is ideal for tiny tots who enjoy putting everything in their mouths. Why run the risk that your toddler will accidentally ingest all of the tempera paint, when he can “paint” with frosting?

Art activities for kids' with paint don't have to include temperas! We had a few less-than-fresh berries that seemed to have gotten lost in the back of the fridge. Instead of tossing the mushy fruit into the trash, I reused it and turned it into a natural paint.
This type of art activity is ideal for young children who tens to 'eat' things that they shouldn't. If your child dips her brush into her paint and then decided to taste it, using this recipe (with fresh berries and beets) may put you more at ease.
