Bake a Crazy Caterpillar

Bake a Crazy Caterpillar

  1. First make milk paint by dividing a can of sweetened condensed milk among four containers. Use food coloring to tint the contents of the containers different colors. Add clean paint brushes to each one. 
  2. On a foil-lined baking sheet, arrange refrigerated biscuits in the shape of a caterpillar body. Leave one biscuit for the head. To this biscuit, add two raisins for eyes, two pretzel sticks for the antennae, and paint on a mouth.
  3. Have your child(ren) paint the biscuits. When finished, break pretzel sticks in half and poke two pieces into each biscuit for legs.
  4. Bake the biscuits as directed. After everyone has admired the finished product, take it apart to eat. Provide honey from the farmers market if you wish. You can get even more creative by designing biscuit butterflies. Have fun!
