Flower Snacks

When I first thought about this week’s Discover and Explore theme I was sure I’d be sharing a Mother’s Day craft, but after some thought I decided I don’t want to ruin the surprise for the Buddies’ Mom. She’s awesome and reads regularly about what we’re up to, and she deserves a special Mother’s Day surprise just from her boys.

Instead I had a little fun collecting some healthy flower snacks for kids. Lovey has been very interested in helping prepare snacks lately, and she has always been artistic. We’re going to be working together to make some of these flower snacks soon.

Flower Snacks for Kids

I love that most of these snacks involve only a couple of ingredients and are very easy to put together. I hope you like them as much as I do.

    Love this post! I’ve always thought that flowers were one of the easiest and most fun things to make using food! Loving the other creations by other moms! Thanks for sharing! The kids will love these 🙂

  9. Oh my gosh!!!! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this much creativity in one place…and I’m on pinterest!! Lord give me more patience…because my children would LOVE to have these snacks on their plate!

    • Shaunna says:

      I know what you mean, Stephanie! But here’s the great part…and part of my plan…you get to prep the materials and let the girls create their own flower snack with them! We did this for our tree snack recently, and the kids loved it! I bet yours would, too.

  10. These are just beautiful – I almost wouldn’t want to eat them! I’m putting a few of these on the list for our Mother’s Day meals!

    • Shaunna says:

      Aren’t they pretty? And I love that most of them are simple enough for kids to make on their own. Great for Mother’s Day!
