Letter of the Week Snacks: T is for Tree

Sharing is caring!

When you do letter of the week crafts with your preschooler aren’t snacks just as fun too?

We love fun snacks that encourage learning and the kids can help create, my kids LOVE them too!


What better craft that to create a tree out of bananas and grapes for our snack!

This is super easy. I am going to show you how you and your preschooler can create one of these as well.

 You Will Need:

  • 1 banana
  • a handful of green grapes
  • 1/4 of a cup of your favorite yogurt
  • a ziplock bag so you can pipe the yogurt onto the plate
  • scissors for cutting the ziplock bag
  • a knife (use your discretion here)

Here are all of the supplies together.

I used a blue sectional plate that we have from years ago when my oldest was a preschooler.

Slice the grapes in half long-wise.

This helps them lay flat when creating your tree leaves.

Slice the banana in half, also long-wise.

Place the banana flat side down as demonstrated below.

Assemble the grapes flat side down to represent the leaves.

 Put about 1/4th of a cup of your favorite flavored yogurt in a ziplock back.

Cut the bottom corner off of one of the ends of the bag so you can pipe the yogurt onto the plate.

We made a sun, grass, flowers and birds with the yogurt.

  1. Oh my goodess, my kids would love this edible tree! Thank you for linking up to the Thoughful Spot Weekly Blog Hop!

  2. Found you via Tutorial Tuesday! And STOP IT! My kids would love this- I need to incorporate more interesting ways of teaching letters, my 3 year old son is STILL NOT INTERESTED in learning them. And there is no making him do anything he isn’t fully bought into … yikes! Thanks again for sharing, can’t wait to browse through the rest of your blog!

  6. This is a really good idea. The fact that the grapes are cut means there’s less risk of choking too. Thanks for linking up to the Kids Co-op I shall be featuring you this week.

  10. I just came across all your alphabet crafts and snacks! I can’t wait to do these with my kids! However, I cant seem to find snacks for the letters U-Z. Am I missing them somewhere? I only found through letter T.

  11. Fun idea! Every once in awhile I’ll make my girls’ food even more fun. Especially for my oldest school lunches I make her. I’ll cut out fun shapes out of bread and make sandwiches. I’ll use the extra bread pieces to make bread crumbs for a meal.
