I don't know why but I find that title funny--maybe I should start thinking about getting professional help.
Now that I've gotten that out of my system, it's time to play with our food. Mailbox had another really cute snack that I altered a bit. In the magazine the ingredients are Ritz crackers, Vienna fingers, mini-M&M's, pretzel sticks, and cheese. I have included the instructions from Mailbox, but my chick is a little different. I tried to stay away from the sugar for this one.
For the chick I made you will need:
some type of sliced meat:
ham, pepperoni, bologna, etc.
Each child gets 2 Ritz Crackers. These are placed on a plate. Two mini pretzels are then used for the wings. Use two pretzel sticks for the legs(I didn't have pretzel sticks, I improvised). Give the children a piece of cheese and some scissors and let them cut out a triangle for the beak. The final step is pretty fun. Give the child the piece of meat and a straw. Allow them to press the straw into the meat to make some eyes.
Now that he's all together, what time is it? Time for a tasty snack.
HAPPY EARTH DAY.
