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.
And there you have it. A create way to learn.
Enjoy your tree snack.
Your kids will love when learning is fun!
