Fall Tree Snack for Kids

This week’s theme for Discover & Explore is Forests. Last year we learned about forests and did a T is for Trees series. One of the activities we enjoyed most was our easy tree snack. It was a fun way to learn about the parts of a tree, encourage creativity, and have a healthy snack.

When I saw delicious sweet yellow tomatoes at the grocery store, I knew my little tomato-lovers would like some. Sitting next to the red cherry tomatoes, I immediately thought of fall and our tasty tree snack. So we made a this easy fall tree snack with red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, and pretzels. I also invited the girls to make their own pictures like we did before, but they were so eager to nibble that we didn’t get very far with the creations this time. Maybe next time!

  10. I bet that would work with apple pieces too. I have been trying to find apple themed foods for my great-nephew. We are going to take him to the apple orchard Saturday and I wanted themed food. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Oh, I bet if you combined red and green apples that would be really neat. Hope it works out! Have fun at the orchard.

  11. This turned out so cute! Lucy is obsessed with tomatoes, thinking she would ‘fall’ in love with this! ;)

  13. Oooh, we’ll have to try this- my little ones don’t like the “squish” of tomatoes so this might be a good way to get them tasting again!
