The kids I know are! You can’t go wrong with fun and easy fall snacks that you and your little ones can make together at home. Are your kids currently in distance learning or homeschool? If so, consider it “Cooking 101 for Kids.” You could make it part of they’re weekly schedule. And even if not, this is definitely, a worthy lesson, bonding time and not to mention the end result is super, yummy treats for all!
Having a variety of snacks for kids to choose from is always best. I try hard to ensure the snacks I offer are balanced. I mean offering healthier options like fruit, crackers and cheese. Let your kids get creative making this turkey platter out of cheese crackers, fruit, cheese, goldfish and edible eyes. Put a little frosting to hold them in place and viola!
Celery snails and caterpillars snacks could also be a huge hit to get the proper servings of veges into your little ones with little fight. At least they might be excited to make the different bugs and try it. Pick up some celery, grapes, apples, oranges, cherry tomatoes, peanut butter, cream cheese, circle crackers and edible eyes to make these creations go!
Have you heard of Spider PB&J? These mini sandwiches are super cute and so easy to make. Set out your circle cookie cutters, pretzel sticks, raisins, bread and peanut butter and jelly of course. And don’t fret if you don’t have a cookie cutter. Use a glass or circle tupperware, press hard and peel the excess bread away. You’ll have the shape needed to make these spiders come to life.
Finally, I would like to mention one chocolatey fall treat that would be fun to create. Chocolate owls are made up of sliced apples, chocolate melts or chocolate chips melted to dip, Oreo cookies halves and cut, edible eyes, candy corn and sticks or skewers. Again, use a dab of melted chocolate to stick the eyes for a real hoot. Plus ribbon if you want to add an extra touch.
It’s decorated in such sweet goodness, that your kids will love them with OWL their heart!
