Ok, every kid that I know loves this recipe. Celery sticks, cleaned and cut to about 3 inches. Put some peanut butter in the celery stick and add rasins or blueberries. Thats it! This is a good recipe to make with the kids. Let them build their logs.
Banana Dolphins are a great surprise for any kid! Super fun and super easy. All you need is prepared jello (I like blue jello, it looks like water) Bananas and Grapes and a black marker. Scoop some jello in to a small cup, slice thru the banana about 3/4 down leaving the peel intact. Slice the banana stem in half to look like the mouth of a dolphin and insert a grape. Color the tip of the banana stem black and make some eyes. Simple right?!

This is a good one to let the kids make on their own. With only 3 ingredients they will be done in a snap. Grab your pretzel sticks, dip or roll the tops in peanut butter then roll the peanut butter area in crushed nuts of your choice. This is a snack that is packed with protein.
Fruit Kabobs are always great for the grab and go. A summer staple in many homes. These can be served fresh or frozen for those really hot days. Worried about giving the little ones a kabob stick? Place your cut fruit in a zip lock bag and have them ready to go in the front of the fridge. Quick and easy always wins with the kiddos.
