    There are a couple of recipes for traffic light biscuits here:

    If you look at space travel, then you can make rock cakes and call them moon rocks.
    Bananas and celery sticks are both easy to decorate and turn into boats or cars, but that doesn't really involve much cooking.

    You can always use a standard recipe eg for biscuits or scones, and cut them out using (well washed) playdough transport cutters.
     
  4. Have you tried cheese and marmite tyres! puff pastry rolled out then spread marmite over the pastry then sprinkle cheese on. Roll up and cut so when you lie them down the look like wheels. Oh and they need to cook for a while as well [​IMG] You can put jam or chocolate spread in.

    Some of my kids made traffic light themed food when we were doing Transport and Road Safety.
    The traffic light biscuits were good - rectangular biscuits with circular boiled sweets for the lights.
    Another child made traffic lights with coloured bell peppers (can't remember how now - sorry!)
