Pudding Face

4.7 based on 3 ratings

What You Need:

  • Vanilla, chocolate, or butterscotch pudding mix or pre-made pudding cups
  • Candy decorations (not all of these are needed, just enough to create faces on pudding surfaces) such as: licorice pieces, raisins, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coconut shavings, jelly beans, lifesavers, M&M’s, gum drops, gummy worms, red dots, and sprinkles
  • Bowls or small clear plastic cups
  • Spoon and butter knife

What You Do:

  1. Tell your child he will use candy to create faces on pudding cups, and he’ll get to eat the whole thing!
  2. Your child can help you make pudding from a box of pudding mix (following package directions), or you can provide pudding already pre-made from purchasable pudding cups.
  3. Have your child use a spoon to scoop pudding from the homemade batch or from pre-made cups into a larger bowl or clear plastic cup. After the child has filled the bowl, the parent can use a knife to smooth out the surface of the pudding.
  4. Let your child pick out the candy decorations that he would like to use to create a pudding “face” on the surface of the pudding. He may want to use a red licorice piece, a gummy worm, or a red life saver for a mouth; M&M’s, red dots, lifesavers or chocolate chips for eyes; and perhaps coconut shavings or gummy worms for hair. These are just suggestions; the final design is entirely up to your child!
  5. You may wish to photograph the finished pudding face creation before your child eats it, as it’s sure to be a one-of-a-kind face!
  6. He may want to create more than one pudding face, for example as desserts for your whole family.

Let him eat and enjoy his pudding face creation!
