Food Art: Bumblebee Spring Snack
The first day of spring is upon us and with that comes beautiful flowers, fresh air and new life. It also means bugs. Kids seem to love crawling critters and I’m pretty sure they’re going to love this fruity snack made with their favorite cereals.
What You’ll Need
1 yellow plum
A handful of black grapes
2 apple slices
1 baby carrot
2 black currants
2 Honey-Nut Cheerios
A handful of Honey Kix Cereal
A kitchen knife (please supervise children if allowing them to slice)
How To Make It
1. Slice the yellow plum in half and place half the plum on a plate for the bee’s head. Place 2 black currants on the yellow plum for eyes. Slice 2 thin slices off the baby carrot and place these thin slices above the yellow plum for antennae. Place 2 Honey-Nut Cheerios above the antennae.
2. Slice a handful of black grapes in half. Grab some Honey Kix cereal and make alternating stripes of Honey Kix Cereal and sliced black grapes to make the bee’s body. Add a tiny slice of black grape at the bottom for the bee’s stinger.
3. Slice your 2 apple slices into moon shapes and place 1 slice on each side of the bee’s body for wings.
