Painted toast. Mix food coloring with water, several drops to a cup of water. Test first to see if the color is saturated enough. Use thoroughly cleaned small paint brushes to make designs or pictures on a piece of bread. Don't use too much "paint" or else the bread gets soggy and doesn't taste as good. Bake on a tray in an oven until toasted, try 400 degrees F. Butter and enjoy.
English muffin pizzas. Split open English muffins. Put sauce, pizza toppings and cheese on top. Bake at 375 until cheese is melted.

Make graham cracker houses or castles
Make candied flower petals and put on ice cream. To candy a flower petal, make sure to use only edible flowers such as roses, carnations and violets. You might want to check out a book from the library to determine whether the variety you're using is safe or not. Dip petals in egg white. Then cover gently with fine granulated sugar. Let them dry. Use to decorate cakes, ice cream, or other pretty treat.
Almond bark mints--find the materials and instructions at a craft store.
Cookie Christmas tree. Use star shaped cookies of decreasing sizes, decorated in green frosting and stacked on top of each other to make a tree.
