Fun Kids Snacks

Fun kids snacks can be the easiest part of your job.

Children are always ready for a snack. Snack time is also more casual than a mealtime, and does not even need to be at the table. Sometimes we spread a blanket in the living room, other times we have snack outside.

Never has there been a child who didn’t look forward to snack time. While juice and crackers will suffice, look no further for fun kids snacks.

Fun Kids Snacks


Orange Cream Pops

Let one can (6 ounces) of frozen orange juice concentrate sit out and let thaw for 30 minutes. Then mix with water according to the package directions. Pour the juice into 10 (5 ounce) paper cups. Put one tablespoon of yogurt into each cup, but do not stir. Cover the top of each cup with aluminum foil. Make a small slit in the center of the foil and insert a craft stick in the center. Freeze overnight for a yummy summertime snack.

*This fun kids snack is perfect for those warmer weather days.


Lemon Cookies

Cookies couldn’t be easier than these. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together one package of lemon cake mix, two eggs and 1/3 cup vegetable oil. The dough will be stiff. Drop by tablespoons onto an un-greased cookie sheet about two inches apart. Bake for about 11 minutes and cool for 10 more. So simple and delicious.


Sweet Orange Slices

Peel the skin from oranges. Cut each orange into slices. Do not separate into sections, simply cut the other way to form slices. Each orange should make about eight slices. Remove any seeds. Place the slices on a plate and squirt lemon juice over them. Sprinkle sugar over them and place in the refrigerator until snack time.


Heart Tarts

Roll pre-made pie dough 1/8 inch thick and cut into heart shapes with a cookie cutter. Place half of the hearts on a cookie sheet. Put a teaspoon of strawberry jam in the center of each heart. Cover with another heart, seal the edges, and prick with a fork. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 400 degrees. This is a great snack idea for Valentines Day.


Strawberry Banana Smoothie

You’ll Need: 2 bananas, 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries, 1 cup of plain yogurt, and 1 cup milk. Mix together in a blender for a tasty treat.


Egg-Shaped Cookies

This fun kids snack is great for Easter time. Don't forget to let the kids help. Don’t happen to have an egg shaped cookie cutter? Simply remove both ends from an empty frozen juice can and gently squeeze it into an oval shape.


Peanut Butter and Banana Crackers

Mash a banana with ½ cup peanut butter and spread on graham crackers.


Homemade Snow Cones

Put clean snow into paper cups. Pour (thaw first) frozen juice concentrate over the snow. Add a straw to each cup for a real winter treat.
