blue pudding cups decorated to look like earth

It's around the world week at our virtual summer camp.   Over the last several weeks, Bri from Parties With A Cause and I have been sharing fun ways for kids to stay entertained at home this summer.   So far this week Bri set a beautiful kid-friendly Japanese themed tablescape.   And I shared a countries around the world game for kids.

Don't these earth pudding cups look like the perfect treat to go along with exploring cultures and geography around the world?

Here's What You Need For These Kids Snacks

These earth pudding cups are so easy to make and you only need a few things:

  • a mixing bowl
  • a whisk
  • instant vanilla pudding mix
  • milk
  • blue food coloring
  • yellow food coloring
  • a sandwich bag
  • small round bowls

How to Make Earth Pudding Cups

The first thing you need to do to make these earth pudding cups is mix up a pack of vanilla pudding according to the directions.  My little boys are always so excited anytime they can help in the kitchen and love to use the whisk.   After stirring the milk into the pudding mix, add a few drops of blue food coloring and stir again.  Then pour blue pudding into each of the bowls that you will be serving.  Once the bowls are filled, add yellow food coloring to the remaining pudding mix in the batter bowl until you get the desired shade of green.

After the green pudding is all mixed up, add it to a sandwich bag and cut off a small piece of the corner.  This is actually how I decorate my sugar cookies too.  Sandwich bags with a tiny snip in the corner make excellent piping bags!

Next, pull up a picture of the earth for a reference.  Then pipe some green pudding onto the blue pudding to form continents.  I found it helpful to do a basic outline first and then go fill in the centers.

My little boys loved these earth pudding cups way more than I was expecting them too!  They had a blast pointing out the continents before eating their treat.

Although we will be sharing fun projects, activities, and recipes for kids on our blogs,  Bri and I have also started a Facebook Group for parents to share ways they are keeping kids happy this summer.  I hope you will join us!
