Cocktail stick snacks

We made cocktail stick snacks. This was a simple activity to do but fun for Sunnyboy, and fun to eat too. We used banana, apple, grapes, pepper, tomato, cheese and dried apricots.

  1. Isn't it funny how something so simple encourages kids to eat healthy foods? If I add toothpicks to anything, Emily will gobble it right up! Great post!

  2. Meara really enjoys eating using toothpicks. Every sunday after church we go to the same place for lunch. She gets a child's hotdog and uses the toothpick from our burger to eat the cut up pieces. She thinks it's a treat! ;-)

  11. When he gets a bit older, you can use bamboo skewers and have him make a pattern with the fruit. This activity was super cute and works on those fine motor skills.
