Here is a fun healthy snack idea I got out of Ashlyn’s Highlights Magazines. Here is how, you too, can make your own edible ladybug.
- Cut a red apple in half.
- Have your child use a knife or spoon to put small amounts of peanut butter on the top of the apple.
- Place raisins, chocolate chips, M&M’s, etc. on the dabs of peanut butter.
- Then use a toothpick to attach a grape to the front of the apple for the ladybug’s head.
- The magazine then says to use black licorice for the legs but I thought pretzel sticks could be fun too. (I didn’t have either when we made ours so we had a legless ladybug.
It was so easy to make and Ashlyn loved eating it. This would be a great activity for playdates or your child’s preschool class.
