Children will draw silly snack ideas which can later be created (at the leader's discretion)
- Print the Silly Snack worksheets
- Make one copy for each child
- Crayons, markers, colored pencils
- Optional: provide snack foods so that children can make and taste their creations
- Distribute the Silly Snack worksheet and explain that they are to create the silliest super snack around! Tell kids that a super snack makes a bridge between two meals, so it should have a fruit and/or vegetable AND at least 1 other food from another healthy food group, (grains, low-fat milk or dairy foods, or protein foods like nuts, seeds, lean meat, eggs or legumes).
- Children should identify the foods in their snacks, draw a picture of how it is made, and name the snack.
- Offer some silly ideas for their snacks (or have small groups work together to create a snack for each category). Examples:
- Out-in-space snack
- Midnight snack
- Volcano snack
- Ocean snack
- Gather in a circle so that each child can tell the others about his/her silly snack.
- Optional: vote for the silliest; most likely to eat; or least likely to eat snacks.
- Compile all the individual pages and create a Silly Snack Recipe Book!
- Make it and taste it! As a group select a few silly snacks to try then gather the ingredients so that children may make them and taste them the following day.
Note: You may want to select the snacks with common or user-friendly ingredients!
