eating bugs in the library
After we were all finished making our bug snacks I read two stories: The Wolf's Chicken Stew, Keiko Kasza and Whopper Cake, Karma Wilson--the kids LOVED the stories (and made me laugh when some of them thought Whopper Cake was about a cake made out of Burger King Whoppers. :)
Simply make a nut-butter sandwich using apple slices, cut it into quarters, arrange the pieces as shown, and add a trimmed carrot stick.
Decorate wings with a dot of peanut butter and raisins, chocolate chips etc., if you so desire
RED DELICIOUS LADY BUG:
Raisins (or chocolate chips)
Grapes –you will also need toothpicks to secure grapes
Slice apples in half, making sure to remove core and seeds. After laying 1 half flat, cut almost all the way through, leaving an attached section near one end.
Dot peanut butter along the apple skin, putting a raisin on top for lady bug’s spots.
Skewer a grape on, using a toothpick, for the lady bug’s head.
Lay pretzels under the apple for legs.
BERRY DELICIOUS CATERPILLAR:Ingredients:
Use dabs of cream cheese to attach chunks of fruit together (you can also skewer them on tooth picks—the effect is less curvy however)
Sandwich two pieces of paper “antennae” between the front two pieces of fruit.
For eyes, roll two small balls of cream cheese, press them flat onto the head, dot the cream cheese w/ decorators' gel.
