As the mommy of two beautiful, amazing little girls, I find myself trying to make meals and snacks that are both appealing to my kiddos, but also at least somewhat healthy. I stray away from the gummy worms, Cheetos, and snack cakes that sound good and lean a tad more towards the whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies.
Don’t pity my children … they eat more than their share of cookies and candy from my parents 🙂
I have to say, when it comes to the treats I’m about to share, I am a tad proud of myself. I made this treat AND came up with the snazzy saying for the tags WITHOUT using Pinterest. This is HUGE for me!
Now, I’m sure I’m not the only person who has ever used this idea, so I won’t give myself too much credit 🙂
Without further adieu … here are the Cheese Cracker Carrots my daughter shared with her friends!
Items Needed for 20 “Carrots”:
- Cheese Crackers (3 regular size boxes)
- Plastic Sandwich Bags (NOT the zipper bags)
- Green Ribbon
- Scissors … or a knife, if you’re like me and can’t find your scissors!!
- Measuring Cup
- Easter Tags
When we assembled our “carrots,” we measured 3/4 cup of cheese crackers for each baggie and added the crackers to the baggie so they filled in a triangle shape. Next, we tied the string around the baggies, poked a hole through the tags and tied them onto the string. Then, we curled the ribbon. That’s it!
These treats would be great for any early childhood classroom, but especially those where peanuts or milk is an allergy issue.
Not so much with gluten, though :/
