Edible Art Workshop with the Snohomish Boys & Girls Club
What a great time at the Snohomish Boys & Girls Club on Friday, November 20 – teaching them how to play with their food! SCFS Members showed kids how to make several fun edible art projects just in time for holiday snacking.

SCFS Members ready at the Strawberry & Banana table where they made Santas and Grinches.
Putting together santas.
A pile of Santa and Grinch Kabobs.
Aren’t they cute?!
SCFS junior members helped kids make Christmas trees and veggie tray turkeys.
The Christmas Tree Queen…
First you start with a shaved pineapple, pear, and pineapple star…
Then you use toothpicks to add the chunks of fruit – any kind you want (can be done with veggies or dried fruit too).
The trees were easy and fun to do with all ages of kids.
One of the finished Christmas Trees. Tree #1
They made four trees altogether. Tree #2
Another tree. Like the orange peel garlands? Tree #3
Tree #4 (in no particular order). Beautiful and tasty!
The Odds & Ends table with several projects as well as impromptu decorating.
Besides fruit, mini chocolate chips and an occasional small marshmallow were used.
One of the projects was a Southern Hemisphere Christmas Tree.
Otherwise known as a palm tree – have one for lunch!
Small turkeys were made here, and original designs.
Someone even made a skater!
More original creations.
They also made these cute grape caterpillars. Make a trayful for a party. (upper left, Turkey #1)
Another table made Turkey Platters with a veggie tray from Costco.
They definitely had fun playing with the food here.
So many options here – those are eyes in the dip. Turkey #2
Another Turkey Veggie Tray. Turkey #3
Also in the veggie department was the creation of “A Winter Scene”
Compelte with broccoli trees (parsnip bases), celery cabins with carrot chimneys and cream cheese mortar, a carrot fence, cucumber snow, and a pond of dip (with a carrot fish in it!) What a fun way to feed a crowd!
All laid out and ready to eat. Good work kids! Thanks SCFS members!
All the leftover cut-up fruit was put to good use later.
Fruit chutney to serve up at the next SCFS meeting. Apple-Grape, Melon-Kiwi-Orange, and Pear. See you Dec 10 to learn about grapes!
