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.
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.
Cucumber Flowers with Yogurt Cheese Spread from Super Healthy Kids
Apple and Raisin Flower Snack from Jenni Price Illustration
Sunflower Kid Lunch from Rindy Mae
Flower Garden from Creative Kid Snacks
Strawberry and Kiwi Flower Snack from With or Without Nap
Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips from Meet the Dubiens
Fruit Flowers from Creative Kid Snacks
Spring Snack from The Nature of Grace
Hyacinth Snack from Munchie Mom
Tomato Flower from Kiddie Foodies
If you are still looking for a Mother’s Day craft of flower ideas, I do have plenty of inspiration over on my Mother’s Day and Spring Activities Pinterest Boards. I hope you find what you are looking for there!
We’d love for you to share how you
