As a mom, I occasionally look to be creative with my kids snacks, foods and meals. I mean, life is short, let’s have some fun and make these Super Cute Snack Pack Snacks.
Play with your food? YES! on occasion I think it is a lot of fun to make food creations that are as fun as they are yummy. While it’s SO much fun to remind the kids ( once again) to take their elbows off the table, don’t hunch to eat your food, sit in your chair properly and don’t talk with your mouth full. ( heavy eye rolling) I like to relax the rules and let the kids have a bit of fun at the table too.
Winter is here, well it’s close- we’re having milder temps then normal, but soon we’ll be looking out and watching the flakes come down. I wanted to come up with something fun to do when we have our next Snow Day. Wouldn’t this be cute to do over the holidays? While the kids are home from school. We usually have friends or cousins over and I think this would be an awesome way to craft up for an after lunch snack.
And the flavor combo’s here are walking in a S’mores Wonderland! Vanilla or Chocolate, grahams, and marshmallow. How delicious! Click here to check out other ideas for Holiday Mix-In’s!
I found my ingredients at WALMART while I was grocery shopping. All the ingredients for this are easily found in your grocery section. I always shop at WALMART to get bargains on holiday items.
Have you see the new sized SUPER Snack Pack puddings? Nice big packages of pudding. YUM! What I like about this idea is that all the products can be kept in the pantry until you have that perfect snow day or holiday gathering.
Since I was gathering, I picked up one each of the Snack Pack pudding flavors. There is Vanilla, Chocolate, and Chocolate Vanilla.
I also tossed in some other items into my shopping cart. Including..
Teddy Grahams, holiday sprinkles, mini marshmallows, sweet & sour trees, gel icing tubes ( red and green), and some edible markers.( black and orange)
It’s a great idea to have several small bowls of each item to place on your table, so that each food item can be used without much wait.
I also decided to add some fun writing on my cups.
Use a black permanent marker to color, draw, or write on the front of the cups before opening the lids. Kids can do a holiday drawing, icon, or saying. Even writing their names can be fun too!
The very basic cup to make is to place mini marshmallows inside the cup, on top of the Snack Pack pudding, all facing the flat end up. This gives a grid lid base layer. I tucked the Teddy Graham’s in between the marshmallows to hold them up and keep them standing. I then added a couple trees.
You can add as much or little as you prefer to each Snack Pack pudding cup. Teddy Grahams, sprinkles, trees. etc…
I added hats to some of my Teddy Graham’s. Just use the gel icing to pipe out a little hat over the bear’s head.
And add a little green around the bear neck and a little X for the scarf shape. You can still pick him up by the ears to put into your scene.
I loved how much the black food writer pen accented the faces of the plain bears.
To make a snowman, tap a little water onto a marshmallow, then stick another on top. Use the orange and black food writers to dot on eyes, nose, mouth and buttons to make the snowman.
Take a steady hand and give that snowman a little hat and scarf. Be sure to stick a little water on the bottom of the snowman to stick him to the marshmallow layer,
You can create all kinds of cute winter scenes with these ingredients. Don’t those Teddy Graham’s look like they are having a totally fun snow day?
Then the best part? You get to eat your creations!
