Banana Snowmen

When I saw these fruity snowmen in Family Fun magazine, I knew my little childcare boys would like them for a special snack one day!

Instead of threading the fruit onto skewers, I simply arranged the fruit in a snowman shape on a plate. Two and a half year old boys are plenty dangerous without the help of sharp pointed objects!

I used blueberries instead of a grape, large chocolate chips instead of minis and carrot sticks instead of pretzels for the arms. Older kids would enjoy assembling this snack themselves.

There were smiles all around when these fun snowmen were served!

What a cute idea! I can imagine how thrilled your daycare kiddos were to see their snack!
