Make a Xylophone Veggie Snack in 5 Mins

As part of the A-Z blog challenge last year, I had to come up with a fun food idea each day during April. The letter X saw me build a Xylophone out of food! Bonkers I know but I thought X-ray would be harder. So here we have a cute xylophone snack or lunch time treat. Honestly, give it a go – it didn’t take long and it looks so cute!

Watermelon Umbrellas

Another A to Z post saw me making these cute watermelon umbrellas. The seeds make beautiful rain drops. I used a circular cookie cutter to make the umbrella edge. It took minutes.

Koala bear

Mini rice cakes make this cute koala bear snack. You can spread them with cream cheese or peanut butter –whatever your little ones enjoy. I used blueberries to make eyes and added some asapargus stalks. Random I know, so perhaps try cucumber of celery?!
