Bring the “3 Rings” to your kitchen with these circus-themed snacks for your kids. These fruit and veggie dishes may not be your standard circus fare, but they will be sure to get a standing ovation from your little ones just the same.
Bring in the Clowns!
Make a clown’s face by using a small tomato for the nose, carrots (cut and arranged) for the mouth, dollops of hummus for the eyes, and shredded cheddar cheese for the hair.
The Lion’s Mighty Roar!
Thin slices of yellow and red bell pepper are perfect for the lion’s mane. Use raisins for the eyes, hummus for the nose, thinly sliced celery stalks for the whiskers, and small green bell pepper slices for the mouth.
An Elephant Never Forgets!
Pear slices are used for the ears, red grapes for the eyes, a sliced banana for the trunk, and yogurt (piped in lines) makes the tusks.
Note: Supervise toddlers and young children while they eat these snacks. To prevent choking, some of the fruit and vegetables may need to be cut into smaller, bite-sized pieces prior to consuming.
