Looking for CREATIVE snack ideas

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I love surprising the kids on my children's baseball/soccer teams when it is our kid's turn to bring the team snack. (Our daughter is 7 yrs. and our son is 9 yrs.) But, this year it seems I'm beginning to run out of ideas. :

If you have any ideas or if you know of any websites that have clever snack ideas, please e-mail me when you can.

My e-mail address is:

I know kids aren't fussy, but I just like to make snack time fun and exciting for them.

Our soccer teams all get fruit at 1/2 time, then an after game snack AND drink.

I usually do fruit kabobs for 1/2 time that have been a huge hit!! (Cantaloup, watermelon, green and red grapes, strawberries, etc.), using those red, plastic, coffee stirrers/straws instead of toothpicks since they aren't as pointed. The kids love them.

I love finding clever ideas that are fun to look at as well as to eat. Here's some things I've made in the past:
Cake filled ice cream cones,
Blue Jell-O in Clear cups with gummy worms coming out of them and crushed graham cracker crumbs on the bottom (pretend sand).
Cup cakes frosted white and then I used thin red licorice to make it look like a baseball.
Made some popcorn balls and put them in clear cellophane bags that had a soccer design on them from a party good store.

My mind is going blank, I'll post more as I remember, to give other moms/dads ideas that work just as well in lunches too. : )

I REALLY appreciate your time! Hope everyone is having a very "blessed" day today!!

The book "Super Baby Food" by Ruth Yaron has lots of fun snack ideas in the back - it is probably available at your local library. I highly recommend it!

Thanks. I'll check at our local library and see if they have it. Thanks for taking the time to share that with me.
