More About This Recipe
Snack time for kids can be delish and fun when you make these famous munchy caterpillars out of kids' fave fruit snacks!
We love all the cool recipes that members submit on Tablespoon! I’m always on the prowl for fun after school snacks and saw this cute Very Hungry Caterpillar from AlexisH, based on the famous children's story by Eric Carle.
All my children love that book so we decided to try and make our own Hungry Caterpillar Snacks version to look just like the character. I was stumped until Fruit Gushers snacks and cherry tomatoes came to the rescue!
These are so simple to make and only take a few ingredients. The kids loved making their own and it gave us a great chance to chat about their day at school.
If you don’t have fondant but want to make the snack extra special, serve some plates of sliced fruit and cheese with a straw for each child….can you tell where we’re going with this?...
Let each child use his/her straw to poke out “nibble” holes in the food…just like in the book!
The kids loved this; there were plenty of giggles and nibbles going on! We are all about ideas that are easy to put together but make for some special quality time!
