Spider Man Spaghetti



Present this Spider Man spaghetti to your little boys at dinner and see their faces light right up! We used spaghetti noodles, sauce, and bread sticks.

Make your noodles and favorite spaghetti sauce and layer that on the plate. Use extra noodles to make the web (the kids love helping with this part). Cut the ends off of the bread sticks for the eyes. This spaghetti Spider Man is definitely a favorite with the boys in this house and it's so easy!

A Phineas and Ferb Fiesta!


We came up with these Phineas and Ferb Quesadillas and this is so much fun to make for the kids at your Cinco de Mayo party! 

Phineas and Ferb Fiesta

2 tortillas
shredded cheese
sour cream
 black beans
salsa
guacamole

Cut the tortillas into the faces using kitchen scissors. Fill them with black beans & cheese. Use your sour cream and black beans for the eyes. Use your guacamole and salsa for the hair. We just put a spoon full in the middle and spread out from that with a knife. Use sour cream and salsa for the Phineas mouth.

I am sure this will be a regular in this house since my boys loved these so much! You could always use lettuce or avocados for Ferb's hair. Get creative and use what your kids like. The best part about these is that they are so easy!

Fruit Snail


We made this cute little snail using 1 clementine, 1 banana, and 2 pretzel sticks.

We placed our banana on the plate. Peel the clementine and put it on the top of the banana. Put 2 pretzel sticks in the banana for the antenna. We used our clementine peel to make a swirl pattern on the shell. We also cut a couple pieces off to put on top of the pretzel antennas and for the mouth. We used edible eye balls for the eyes, but you could cut a raisin for that. A cute and super easy way to get the kids to eat their fruit!

A Woody Lunch


We made a woody wagon sandwich awhile back and it turned out pretty cute. We used bread, peanut butter, apple butter, 1 large and 1 mini marshmallow, 1 carrot, 1 graham cracker, 1 yellow fruit roll up, and 1 strawberry.

We cut out our bread into a wagon shape. We covered it in peanut butter. We put our apple butter lines on top of that. We cut out our marshmallows to make details. We cut our large carrot into a surf board shape. We cut our strawberry for the lights and to put two strips on top of the surf board. We put our graham cracker on the plate and cut a few strips from the fruit roll up to make the road lines.

We had a lot of fun making this!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a WALLffle


This is a very easy and simple breakfast that the kids will love. We used 1 hard boiled egg, 2 square waffles, and 1 piece of turkey bacon.

Take the hard boiled egg and cut it in half. Place your square waffles on the plate. Put one half of the egg on top of the waffle. Put the other half about half way down and cut it into a zig zag down the middle. Take your cooked bacon and and cut out arms, legs, and the face with kitchen scissors. The perfect breakfast to have the kids make themselves!

Cheesy Chick Popping Out of His Easter Egg


My 4 yr old came up with this lunch and he is very proud of it. He wanted to post this on Easter. I think he had a wonderful idea and did a great job! We used bread, peanut butter and jelly, cheese, cheese puffs, grapes, lettuce, and bunny crackers.

We cut our bread into a egg shape. We decorated it with peanut butter and jelly. We cut our cheese out into the shape of a chick. We cut our cheese puff chips in half. We cut our grapes in half and then the tops to look like the ends of carrots. We added our lettuce and put our carrot chips/carrots on top. We put on the bunny crackers and decorated the chicks face.

HAPPY EASTER...He has risen!

A Peeplicious Pop!


We made these super easy marshmallow pops. We took large marshmallow eggs and cut them down the middle with a zig zag a little over half way down. We cut the bottoms off of our peeps and used those to give them wings. Just put them on a stick and you have your cute little peeps popping out of their eggs! You can't get any easier than that!

Baggie and Pipe Cleaner Easter Fun!


I made these today for my boys for them to have something in their basket that was somewhat healthy other than candy. Thought I would share this for a last minute Easter idea.

For the bunny...I stuffed a large baggie with cheerios. I used brown pipe cleaners to shape the ears. I connected different colored pipe cleaners to make the nose, teeth, whiskers, and eyes. I connected all of them. I popped a hole in the bag to connect the face. This is for my 8 month old who just loves his cheerios! It's hard to find things to put in a baby Easter basket! However, I will have to pop off those pipe cleaners before he gets a hold of it!

For the carrots...I put cheese bunny crackers (you could use any cheese crackers) in a large baggie. I twisted it and cut off the top. Use a green pipe cleaner to wrap around the top and twirl it.

Easter Egg Pancakes with Baby Chick Eggs



We made this breakfast the other morning and we used pancakes, eggs, grapes, strawberries, and a clementine.

We shaped our pancakes into eggs. The boys wanted grapes and strawberries to decorate it. We shaped our scrambled eggs into a chick and used our clementine to make the beak and feet. We used grapes for the eyes. Fast and cute!

Easter Potato Eggs with a Bunny Biscuit and Salad


We decorated these potatoes and had some fun with our biscuit and salad. We used 1 potato, sour cream, cheese, 1 biscuit, 1 raisin, salad, and bunny crackers.

We baked our potato and then cut it in half. We then painted them with our sour cream and cheese. We cut a couple of slits on top of the biscuits before baking to make some ears. We cut up a raisin for the eyes and nose. We cut a darker piece of lettuce for the whiskers. We added our salad to the plate and placed our bunny crackers on top. It's a fun dinner for the kids and a good way to get them to eat some salad!

You can buy the Annie's bunny crackers in most grocery stores. They are usually in the natural food section.

Baked Bunny Potato Soup and Cheesy Carrot Toast


We made this Baked Bunny Potato Soup and thought it would be cute to make a bunny out of it for Easter week. We used potato soup, bread, cheese, & lettuce.

We put cheddar cheese on a piece of bread and put it in the oven for 6 min. on around 425 degrees. Then we cut our cheese toast into a carrot shape. Cut off the crust of those pieces and then cut them into ear shapes. Cut the crusts into whiskers. Use the other scraps for the nose, eyes, and teeth. Make your favorite potato soup recipe and poor it in the bowl. Put on the toast ears and the rest of the face. Put the cheese toast carrot on the plate and add the lettuce leaves.

Took us less than 10 minutes to make the bunny and the kids loved it!

We added our bunny grahams and shaped them into a bunny head. We added the chocolate bunny crackers for the eyes and nose. We cut our marshmallow into whiskers and teeth. It's a very easy and fun lunch to make with the kids!

Easter Burger Basket



We came up with this fun Easter Burger Basket for dinner one night. We used Morning Star burgers, cheese, buns, tomato, pickles, lettuce, and potato wedges.

We made our burgers. We flipped the bun over and put the top of the bun on the plate. Cut the middle out of the bottom bun and set aside. We put on the burger and cheese. We then put on our cut out bottom bun on the top. Filled it will shredded lettuce. We cut a tomato and pickle into egg shapes. Spread those out on the lettuce. We attached our potato wedges on the top for the handle using toothpicks.

My 4 year old does not like tomatoes so we just made his eggs out of ketchup and mustard. That looked just as cute. This is a fun thing to make with the kids!

Ice Cream Bunny Chillin' In His Waffle Basket


We had some whisker/noses that we piped onto wax paper left over from our bunny cookies so we decided to make these adorable Ice Cream Bunnies! They are so easy..everything just sticks right on the ice cream! We used 2 small scoops of vanilla ice cream, a waffle bowl, 1 pink egg shaped marshmallow, 2 chocolate chips, our whiskers (chocolate chips..a pink jelly bean...and 1 mini marshmallow cut in half), and edible grass.

We put the edible grass in our waffle bowl. Then we put two small scoops of ice cream on top of the grass (you can get the grass at the grocery store..ours was 89 cents for a bag). Cut the large marshmallow in half and snip off the bottom corners so the ears will stick together. Put them on the top and just pop on the whiskers, nose, teeth, and eyes.

We also tried this without the marshmallow ears. We just shaped the ears out of ice cream with our spoon. You could also try it on a regular cone with one scoop! This is definitely a hit with the kids!

Easter Bunny Basket Breakfast


We came up with this cute Bunny and Basket Breakfast for my 4 year old the other morning. We used 1 hard boiled egg, 2 waffles, 1 strawberry, a piece of cantaloupe, 1 raisin, and a few grapes.

Take your prepared waffles and cut them into a basket shape. Cut the grapes to look like grass and the strawberries and cantaloupe to look like eggs (you could use any fruit). Take your hard boiled egg and cut it in half. Cut the backside of the head just a bit to prevent from rolling over. Use the part that you cut off for his teeth. Cut the other half of the egg again for the ears. We used our scrap waffle for his whiskers and the ends of grapes for his eyes. Use a piece of strawberry for the nose. Cut two small pieces of the raisin for the eyes. It is so cute that it doesn't even need any syrup!

Easter Bunny Cookies


This is what we came up this year for our bunny cookies. We made them super easy and I love how they are protected with the marshmallows from getting messed up when you stack them to transport! We made sugar cookies and used a heart shaped cookie cutter, white frosting, pink jelly beans, chocolate chips, large egg shaped marshmallows, large white marshmallows, and mini marshmallows.

We started out making our whiskers by piping our melted chocolate chips onto wax paper. We then added our jelly bean for the nose. You could however skip this and just pipe the chocolate onto the bunny face when the cookies are done. Make your favorite sugar cookie recipe. Our friends at http://twochicksfromthesticks.com/blogs/ have some great sugar cookie recipes. Cut the cookies out with your heart shaped cookie cutter. Cool, flip them upside down, and then frost them with your white frosting.

For the face...cut your pink large marshmallow egg in half and put them on top for the ears sticky side down. Put on your whiskers and chocolate chip eyes. Cut a mini marshmallow in half for the teeth.

For the back side...cut your pink large marshmallow in half and put them on top for the ears sticky side down. Cut your large white marshmallow in half and place on the bottom sticky side down for the tale.

If you can not find large egg shaped marshmallows..just get large white regular marshmallows and cut them in half. Shape them into ears and you can dip the sticky side in pink sprinkles. A great cookie for your kids class Easter party! We hope that you like them!

Phineas and Ferb Fruit


We decided to make a healthy version of Phineas and Ferb. We used 1 red apple, 1 banana, 3 mini marshmallows, 1 raisin, and celery.

We sliced the side off of the apple. Cut the other side so it will not roll over. Cut and shape into a triangle. Use the scrap skin to make the hair on Phineas. Cut the banana in half to use for Ferb. Cut and use the tip of the banana for his nose. Use the marshmallows for the eyes. Cut up the raisin for the eyes and to use for the Phineas mouth. Cut 2 pieces of celery to use for Ferb's hair. You could use grapes for that as well. The boys give it two thumbs up and they even ate the celery!

A Chick Cracking his Potato Egg Dinner



We made this cute little Easter Chick Dinner and it's a good way to get your kids to eat corn! We used 1 potato, rotisserie chicken, mixed greens, 1 baby carrot, and corn.

Bake the potatoes. Cut the back off a bit so it will stay and not roll over. Then cut it in a zig zag for the hatching effect. Cook the corn and shape the head and the body for the chick. Cut the rotisserie chicken with the skin on to make the tree. Use the salad for the leaves and the grass. Cut the baby carrot to shape the beak and little chick feet. I also used 1 black olive slice for the eyes, but you could cut up a raisin or use really anything else for that. This is very quick and easy to do!

Scooby Doo Snack


My boys absolutely love Scooby Doo so they wanted to come up with a Scooby sandwich of course! We used bread, peanut butter, jelly, 1 carrot, celery, 2 grapes, 1 marshmallow, and 2 raisins.

We cut 2 pieces of bread in the shape of Scooby's head. Save the scraps for the nose. We put the jelly on the inside and peanut butter on the outside. We cut our large marshmallow for the eyes and mouth. Attach the raisins on the eyes with peanut butter. Cut 1 grape in two strips for the eye brows. Cut the scrap piece of the bread in the shape of his nose and spread with peanut butter. Cut the other grape in half and use for the nose as well. Cut a piece of celery and carrot for the dog tag. Cut the carrots into bone shapes. We made this in no time and the boys LOVED it!

Bunny Breakfast


We made this Bunny Breakfast this morning. We used pancakes, 1 piece of turkey bacon, 2 green grapes, 2 mini chocolate chips, 1 marshmallow, and 2 pieces of a clementine.

We shaped our face with the pancakes and then shaped the ears. We cut the bottom of the ears to fit on top of the head. Use the pieces that were cut off for the cheeks on the face and cut in circles. Cut the cooked turkey bacon at the end for the nose. Use the rest to cut into strips for the whiskers. Cut 1 grape in half for the eyes. Put your mini chocolate chips on top of them. Cut your mini marshmallow in half and put that on for the teeth. We used a couple pieces of clementine to make little mini carrots. Cut 1 grape in half and then cut 3 strips to put on top of clementine. Turned out pretty cute!

Easter Egg Marshmallow Pops


We decorated these egg shaped marshmallows with icing and sprinkles. For the bunnies we just flipped one of them over and cut the top for the ears. We had a lot of fun!



The boys got creative with the edible markers for these. They had more fun making these than coloring Easter eggs!

Funny Bunny Pears



We came up with these cute Funny Bunny Pears and they were so fun to make! For 1 bunny we used 1 pear, 3 jelly beans, and 2 marshmallows.

We cut the pear in half. Scoop out the seeds (the cheeks will cover up the hole). We used the other half to make the ears, cheeks, and whiskers. Put on the jelly beans for eyes and nose. Add the mini marshmallows for the teeth. The first time my 4 year old ate and actually loved a pear! Very easy and quick! A great after school snack!

Easter Bunny Dinner!


We came up with this bunny dinner and if you have a hard time getting your kids to eat green beans...this will do the trick! We used mashed potatoes, string green beans, rotisserie chicken, 3 small carrots, and a small biscuit.

We started out shaping the bunny with our mashed potatoes. We then added our cooked sting beans for the grass. We cut the rotisserie chicken and left the skin on for the tree and branches. We then added the rest of the string beans for the tree leaves. We put 2 carrots by the bunny. Cut the other carrot for the bunny face and cut up carrot sticks for the sun. We used a tiny biscuit for the sun, but you could use sliced carrots for that. The boys loved it and we hope that you love it too!

Crab Apples



We came up with these crab apples from a picture on a cup the boys got from Moe's. We used 2 apples, 3 large marshmallows, 6 pretzel sticks, peanut butter, and 4 chocolate chips.

We cut the apple in half & used the other half for the claws. We made a couple of holes with a knife to make it easy to put in the pretzel sticks for the arms and eyes. We cut 2 marshmallows in half for the eyes. Put the sticky side on the apple. We cut the other marshmallow for the mouth. Use peanut butter to put on the chocolate chips. Very easy and the kids love this!

April Fools' BANACHOS!



We came up with these Banachos to look like cheesy nachos for April Fools' Day. We used 1 banana, vanilla pudding, 1 drop of orange food coloring, vanilla wafers, a green fruit roll up.

We made the pudding and put 1 drop of orange food coloring in it to make it look like nacho cheese. Put in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up. We cut some strips of a green fruit roll up...folded it over and rolled them up to make our jalapeno peppers. We sliced our banana in 3 strips and cut those into triangles to look like chips.

We started out layering at the bottom our vanilla wafers (which you will not see). Put the bananas on top of that, but save 4 or 5. Put on the pudding and then place the extra banana chips around the sides. Add your fruit roll up peppers and there you go...Banachos!


HAPPY APRIL FOOLS' DAY!
