    Smile Looking for colorful snacks for kids

    Hello everyone,

    I`m looking for economic, easy to make(no long preparation) but creative colorful snacks for my boys for when they arrive from school.

    Does anyone have any ideas? I`m just out of ideas, here and the boys are tired of my fruits and muffins.

    Thanks

    Can you construct art or encourage them to wash their hands and help out? Meaning cut/dice up fruits/veggies into diff shapes and use a plate as your canvas. You can make a flower, a turtle, spider, faces, flowers etc.

    Layer the sliced fruits/veggies accordingly. You can include cheese and crackers as well. Be creative!

    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Pickled eggs can be red (beet juice) or neon yellow (pickle juice).

    Cream cheese spread (mixed with blueberry or strawberry jam) on toast or English muffins.

    Apple slices with caramel or Nutella.

    Celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins or dried cranberries.
