Jelly Bean Picture

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Preschoolers love making art with jelly beans, but they also love eating them -- so don't use glue!


  • Cardboard
  • Ornamental Frosting
  • Jelly beans


  1. Help your child draw a picture with Ornamental Frosting on a piece of cardboard-this frosting works like glue and tastes great!
  2. Have her place jelly beans on the frosting.
  3. You can give this project a seasonal theme by using pastel jelly beans on a rabbit picture for Easter, or green jelly beans on a Christmas tree and beans of other colors for lights and decorations.
  4. Avoid using glue for this project, because your child is sure to eat the jelly beans.
