more silly food art that you can do too!
Everyone had so much fun with our post on super silly food art that we had to share this with you as well. One of our newest books at Dilly Dally is this hilarious picture book, “Food for Thought” by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers. It’s full of amazing photographs of food come to life. All it takes is a good eye for interesting faces lurking in your everyday fruits and veggies, a little imagination, a small knife and some black eyed peas (they make perfect eyes!).
We love this book – it’s funny and so creative. We also love that it’s art we can all try out, much like carving a pumpkin at Halloween. It’s also a great way to get kids more in tune with food and all its natural variations as they look closely for interesting shapes to work with. Looking for an odd shaped pepper is a neat activity to try out at your local farmers market or grocery store. Fun!
