Spice up an easy meal by encouraging your kids to really play with their food!

Here’s an easy project on a day when you might not really have time to do anything but make dinner.  Use pizza toppings (we used pepperoni, green peppers, and tomato) and some little frozen pizzas.  Or you can easily make your own pizza dough for an even tastier result!

Use

  • store bought frozen pizzas (or make your own!)
  • toppings
  • kitchen sheers and/or a knife

Prepare lots of toppings in various shapes for your kids to pick through.  We found that just as many toppings went into mouths while we were still in prep-phase – but that’s fine!  Just make sure to cut extras.  We made triangles, circles, straight lines, and (on request) some crazy mouths.

Let your kids arrange their toppings into faces.

I am a certified K-12 Art Educator who lives, works, and blogs from Philadelphia, PA. I have a background in the studio arts (printmaking, photography, fiber arts and design), and am interested in making, collaborating, collecting, and recording things. One of my main goals as a grown-up is to help kids increase their visual literacy, by exposing them to art history, introducing vocabulary, and teaching kinesthetic art making skills. These lessons in visual literacy often take place in an intentional classroom setting, but just as well might happen at home, working on a project!
