Our friends over at Curate Snacks just launched their delicious and nutritious snack bars made for kids and to help celebrate, today we’re sharing a fun arts and crafts project you can do with your littles! Inspired by our Face The Foliage projects, all of the sudden snack time becomes a creativity builder with healthy helpings of both snacks and imagination.
We’ve created four placemats with animal and human face outlines on them (free printable at the bottom of the post!). This will make it super simple to ‘fill in’ the lines to create the edible masterpieces! Just print out the placemats on 11X17 paper and laminate! (You can also get them laminated at your local copy shop…).
Once you have your placemats, put out bowls of fruits (sliced apples, kiwis, berries…) and things like nuts and raisins (anything can work — just get creative and use what’s in season). Many of our ingredients were inspired by the ingredients in the Curate Kids snacks — we had oats and chocolate chunks, apple slices and cinnamon sticks, and banana slices (which make great eyes!). Then let the kids go to town getting all creative making food faces!
How cute are these cinnamon stick beaver teeth??
I’m also a big fan of the kiwi monkey eyes…
We’re calling this a kid’s project but truth be told I had so much fun with the project that I could do this all day long. Similarly, we brought a bunch of the Curate Kid’s snacks on our trip to Europe and we all enjoyed them throughout the vacay (hello perfect train snack–the Chocolate-Banana is a family favorite). Below you can find the downloadable place mats (just click and download at full resolution)…We hope you enjoy getting all creative at snack time!
