4 Days til Christmas Countdown: A very healthy and super easy snack kids can make themselves for christmas this year are Grinch Fruit Snacks – you may be thinking? ANOTHER fruit snack? But this one is made of actual real fruit, they can make it themselves and you pop on the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas as they munch on these for the full effect!
What You’ll Need:
- Green Grapes
- Mini Marshmallows
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas Movie (I prefer the animated one but you could always opt for the 2000 Ron Howard film)
If you want to show your kids how to make them, I recommend ages 5 and up, only because the toothpicks have sharp edges.
First cut the banana using a knife. Slice the banana. Place off to the side in a bowl or container. Wash the strawberries using room temperature water. Cut the tops off of the strawberries and toss in the trash. Place to the side. Wash your grapes with room temperature water. Take a toothpick, stick it through your grape, banana, strawberry then top it off with a mini marshmallow.
I thought lining the fruit up then just sticking toothpicks through would be faster but the grapes have a tendency to roll around so doing it one by one is best.
To make it easy for your kids, set up the ingredients in sort of an assembly line formation, especially if you have a multiple kids so they can work together to create their healthy Grinch Fruit Snacks!
