It’ll spice up your treat and you’ll get to play with your food!

Quality Kabobs

Lots of snacks can be cut up and made into a kabob. Put grapes, pineapple, strawberries, and blueberries on a toothpick for a fruit kabob. Grape tomatoes, mozzarella cubes, and cucumbers also make for really yummy kabobs. And salami, cheese, and pieces of bread can be added to a toothpick to make almost mini sandwiches!

Critter Contest

What can you make out of your food? The next time you need a snack, see what kind of animal you can make out of your snack ingredients. Start with something easy, like toast and nut butter, and add fruit slices to turn the toast into a bear, or penguin. Even better, get a friend involved and see who can come up with the best-looking treat! The more fun you have, the better.
