Letter of the Week Snack: B is for Butterfly

Sharing is caring!

Hi, everyone!  I am Chrissy from The Taylor House, I am so excited to be here at Crystal & Comp to share some fun Letter snack ideas with you.  This is our second week of our Letter of the Week Snack ideas for preschoolers and I hope that you will check back each week for new and different snack ideas for your kids. 

Letter of the week snacks are a great way to start introducing letters to your kids at a your age by sharing the alphabet with them in a fun and unique way.  What child wouldn’t love having snacks like these?

Another great idea is to use these snack ideas in your kids classrooms, are they responsible for taking snack occasionally for the class?  Have them coordinate there snack with the letter they are learning that week.  I think a teacher would love this idea. 

This week we are sharing a snack using the letter “B”. Since spring has just started here in Minnesota, I thought of butterfly.  You can find the instructions below on how to make your Butterfly Snack.

  1. So cute! Great to see my friend Chrissy here today- made me smile.

  2. This is great because it’s so obviously connected to the letter, but so simple! No fancy ingredients! Plus it’s really quite adaptable. Anything could go inside the bag, even mixed fruit. Great idea!

  3. This butterfly idea is adorable!! I’d love it if you could link up to my new party!!
    Have a blessed day!

  4. Hi Crystal,
