How to make a kix butterfly snack

1. Slice your naval orange slices in half, creating 4 pieces.  Place these 4 pieces on a plate to make butterfly wings.

2. Grab some green grapes and place them in a line between the butterfly wings to make the butterflies body.

3. Using your knife, slice 2 thin pieces off the baby carrot.  Place these thin carrot slices above the top green grape to make antennae.

4. Finally, stick your 2 black sesame seeds on the top grape to make eyes for your butterfly.
