Here is a simple  snack that your kids will love helping you make and the flowers will have them thinking Spring!

Fruit Flower Snack

You'll need:
  • Peanut Butter*
  • Strawberry, stem and hull removed
  • Apple, cut into wedges
  • Raisins or dried cranberries
*If your child has peanut allergies, cream cheese is a great substitute.

An adult should do the cutting and your child can assemble the flower as follows:
  1. Spread peanut butter in the center of a plate with a child safe utensil.
  2. Put the strawberry upside down in the middle of the peanut butter.
  3. Place the apple wedges around the strawberry like flower petals.
  4. Put some raisins around the strawberry (on top of the apple).
Enjoy!
