Your child will love nothing more than combining his two favorite parts of the day: snack time and playtime! This crazy monster mouth is almost as fun to create as it is to enjoy. So, go ahead: Give your child permission to play with his food! Your young chef will improve his fine motor skills as he creates zany edible art.

What You Need:

  • Apples
  • Peanut butter
  • Mini-marshmallows
  • Plastic knife
  • Toothpicks

What You Do:

  1. Before you begin, cut the apple into wedges.
  2. Give your child two apple wedges that will represent the lips of the monster mouth. He can use the plastic knife to spread peanut butter on one side of each wedge.
  3. Help your child take each one of the wedges and place a line of marshmallows into the peanut butter along the thicker part of the wedge. These will be the monster's teeth!
  4. Stack the apple wedges on top of each other, marshmallow side facing in. Secure the mouth by sticking a toothpick through the center to hold it all together.

The monster mouth is finished! Your child should feel free to play with his food before eating up this healthy snack.
