Edible Moss: Kitchen Creation

Kitchen Creation For Kids

Spongy, Strange, and Super!

While working on a kitchen creation idea in our homeschool Swamp Creature Lesson, I knew whatever I was to plan for us, it was going to need a special touch of strange and unusual- just like the Swamp Creature.

After doing some research, I uncovered a quick and easy way to create what I was after, and only required what I already had on hand.

My discovery... Edible Moss!

The great thing about this creation is that it also served as a science experiment!

Mixing, measuring, and predicting what the outcome would be to this seemingly strange mixture and method, had my young learners intrigued.

Can I really eat it?

Is it going to harden?

Will it explode?

Loving all the questions that were being dredged up, I knew that this kitchen creation was one that was going to become a core memory for them, and pair perfectly with the rest of our kitchen creation.
