Food is not a toy, or maybe it is. With edible toys you can let your kids have their meal and play with it too. After all, anything that actually convinces them to eat is worth a shot. The edible pick-up sticks in the video below double as colorful breadsticks and they’re just as much fun to eat as they are to play with.

With not much more than some flour, water and food coloring, you can create these edible pick-up sticks in your own kitchen. And they’re easy enough to make that the kids can help with the cooking, in addition to doing the playing and eating. The best part? You won’t even need to worry about cleaning up after playtime is over, all you have to do is pop them in your mouth.
