A Day in the Life of a Preschool Teacher
I love making food fun at my preschool! While making snacks and lunches that are healthy and appetizing for kids can be time consuming (and sometimes stressful when they don't want to eat it), I think it is very important. The more creative I can get, the more fun I seem to have. AND, the more the kids want to try it.
I spent a lot of time searching for fun ideas to use for snacks and lunches this year. Here are a few photos of things the kids enjoyed:
Monster Cheese Balls. Get the low-down about making them HERE!
Let the kids make jack-o-lanters on their Hamburgers :) Orange sweet-potatoe fries are yummy too!
There are little Halloween themed cupcake sticks everywhere. I found these at Target and they were very fun to put on our apple/ham/cheese wraps.
Any time the kids can make their food-the better! They got to wrap their high-quality sausage dogs up like little mummies! Too cute :)
Simpel and sweet: Cutie orange with a cucumber slice for a stem.
Let the kids turn their cheese slices into fun halloween shapes with mini cookie cutters.
Pumpkin muffins! Yumm.
Dried fruit eyeballs are silly and tasty!
The one sweet treat we had were homemade sugar cookies shaped like bats and pumpkins!
Our final halloween lunch was my personal fave: Tomato soup, egg eyeballs, pumpkin shaped grilled cheese, and a ghost banana. A raisin makes that great mouth!
