Food Art: Under The Sea Snack
This yummy fruity under the sea snack will have your kids begging for seconds. Jammed packed with their favorite fruits and veggies, not to mention their favorite cereal, this is one delicious snack that will bring a huge smile to your kid’s faces.
What You’ll Need
1 celery stalk with ends sliced off
1 slice of dragon fruit, peeled
1 slice of kiwi, peeled
2 green grapes
2 slices of carrot
A handful of blueberries
A handful of black currents
A handful of Kix cereal
A kitchen knife (please supervise children if allowing them to slice)
A small star cookie cutter – optional
How To Make It
1. Place some Kix cereal on the bottom of a plate. Slice 4 thin pieces from your celery stalk and place 2 pieces on each side of the plate for water plants.
2. To make the sea turtle, place your slice of kiwi on a plate. Take your green grapes and place 1 green grape in front of the kiwi slice for the head. Slice the other green grape into quarters and place the pieces around the turtle for the legs. Place 2 black currants on the grape head. To make the goldfish, slice a tiny triangle out of 1 of your carrot pieces. Place this carrot on your plate. Take your other carrot and cut a larger triangle out of it. Place this triangle behind your carrot slice for the tail. Add a black currant eye.
3. To make the starfish you will want to cut your dragon fruit into a star shape using either your knife, or a small triangle cookie cutter if you have one. Place this triangle on your plate and add 2 black currants for the eyes. Now let’s make the crab. Slice 1 large piece off your strawberry and place it on your plate. Take your remaining strawberry and cut 8 thin small pieces for the legs and 2 larger claws using your knife. Place these on your crab, along with 2 black currants for the eyes.
4. Grab some blueberries and place them around your sea creatures on the plate for some water.
