If your kids come home ravenous, they’ll love this After School Snack Idea! While they’re snacking have them fill out a fun FREE Printable for memory keeping.
I think the thing that surprised me the most when my daughter started school was how hungry she was when she got home. The second she walked through the door, she washed her hands and grabbed a snack. I actually have a snack basket in our pantry so she can get one herself, but sometimes I’d like her to eat something more healthy. This After School Snack Idea is very minimum effort and my kids go crazy for it.
The other surprising thing was how little she talked to me about her day. I recently found out that a girl was picking on her part of the year (she was talking to her cousin about it and my mom heard ALL about it). I knew something was up, but she would not tell me. Scary, right? So this printable is my attempt at getting my kids to talk about their days! You can keep them for memories or just make sure they open up a bit about their day (plus, it helps them practice spelling and writing!)
To replicate this After School Snack Idea, you’ll need:
- Apples, sliced and cut in half
- Strawberries, sliced
- String cheese, sliced
- Peanut Butter
- First, arrange the apples in a circular pattern.
- Add a strawberry slice on top of each apple slice.
- Place string cheese on each side of the apples.
- Add peanut butter (place in plastic bag, cut off the tip and pipe in a circle).
- Fill with raisins and serve!
This cute food art only takes 10 minutes to make.I’m not going to lie…we make this for dinner sometimes around here. My kids thought it was so cool the first time I made it and it made me question ever actually cooking dinner.
