These chomping apples look scary, but make delicious and healthy appetizers. You probably already have all the ingredients you need in the kitchen, so head over for this fun afternoon food craft that will tide hunger over while dinner’s cooking. Colorful apples make colorful mouths, and the almonds add a boost of protein and healthy fats for growing bodies. We’re tempted to try this with other fruits, like pears, peaches or even melon!
What You Do:
- Help your child cut an apple in half, and then cut out a V shape from the middle to remove the seeds and create a mouth shape.
- Turn the mouth upside down and slice off a piece of the rounded part, to create a flat foundation on which it can lay.
- Press some small slivers of almonds into the sides of the apple to create teeth.
- Serve the apple bites on a platter to create a tasty snack that doesn’t bite back!
One of the best parts about this recipe if that you can snack on the extra pieces of apple while you work!
