Crafting with Food: Racecar Snacks from Apple Slices

Fun Apple Snacks for Kids

Fun, healthy, and delicious. What’s not to like about making snacks into crafts?

Recently, I’ve been having a lot of fun combining snack time and craft time.  Because, hey, what’s more fun than snacks and crafts, right?!  It’s been fun turning our snacks into kids’ crafts.  I really like the way these apple slice race cars turned out.  I can’t take credit for this idea, though, as that goes to Cristi from Bent on Better Lunches.  I did think I was being pretty clever when I used string cheese for the wheels, although, it really didn’t look as cute as the grapes.
