Edible Alphabet

Edible Alphabet lesson plan

  • 1.

    Food preparation and art projects require close adult supervision to ensure safety. With Edible Alphabet, make sure neither the oven nor hot cookie sheets are accessible to children. i

  • 2.

    Be aware of food allergies. For children age 3 and younger, an adult cuts the clear plastic adhesive and helps lay it over the placemat.i

  • 4.

    Wash hands before measuring and mixing bread dough. Follow each step of the recipe.

  • 5.

    Place a lump of dough on a piece of waxed paper. What does it smell like? Shape it into a letter. Place it on a cookie sheet. Wash hands again.

  • 6.

    While your letter bakes, make a placemat for your snack. Use a large piece of light construction paper. With Crayola® Washable Markers, write alphabet letters or maybe a recipe. Create borders or add fake fringe.

  • 7.

    Ask an adult to help measure clear plastic adhesive, such as Con-Tact® paper, to cover your placemat. Cut it with Crayola® Scissors (age 4 and older only). Carefully lay the plastic over your drawing. Once more, wash your hands.

  • 8.

    How did the shape of the dough change when it baked? When your dough letter is cool enough to eat, enjoy your Edible Alphabet snack on a napkin with your new placemat.
