Recipes for Kids

 

Ants in the Sand

               

  • graham crackers, crushed
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • snack sized resealable plastic bags
  To crush graham crackers, place inside a large (gallon size) resealable plastic bag. Using a rolling pin, smash crackers through bag by rolling back and forth over them until they are all in crumb form. Fill snack sized resealable bags halfway with graham cracker crumbs. Add a small handful of chocolate sprinkles to the bags and seal.

 

Bugs on a Log

 
  • celery stalks
  • peanut butter
  • raisins
Spread peanut butter onto washed and drained celery stalks. Top with raisins. For children who are allergic to peanuts, try using cream cheese or processed cheese spread in place of the peanut butter.


Apple Smiles

  • peanut butter
  • 4 or 5 medium red or green apples, cut into wedges
  • 10 oz bag miniature marshmallows
Spread peanut butter onto one side of each apple wedge. Using miniature marshmallows, position the "teeth" in place onto one of the apple wedges. Top with other apple wedge so that the peanut butter acts as a cement for the marshmallow dentures.

  • Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Kiwi Fruit
  • Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon
Thread fruit onto skewer, cut off pointy edges first. For added safety, you can wrap a piece of tape around the edges.

 Peanut Butter Caterpillars

  • bananas
  • peanut butter
  • grapes
  • chow mein noodles
Peel and slice a banana. Join the slices together by "gluing" them with peanut butter. Carefully poke two chow mein noodles (or break a pretzel stick in half to make two pieces) through the top of the grape. Use more peanut butter to attach the head (grape) to the front of the body, with antennae (chow mein noodles) pointing up.
