how to make a kix unicorn snack

1. Place your sliced brown pear on a plate with the larger end facing up towards the right top corner of the plate.

2. Use your julienne carrot slicer (please supervise children) and slice your large carrot into thin strips.  Place these thin strips on your plate for the unicorn’s mane of hair.

3. Grab your raisins and place the larger raisin on your pear for the eye, and your smaller raisin on the pear for a nostril.  If you are having difficulty getting these details to stick, a small dab of cream cheese will help.

4. Take your Honey Kix cereal and create the unicorn’s horn at the top of the pear.
