Before we eliminated processed foods, Goldfish crackers used to be our “healthy” snack. My daughter created a lovely way to still be able to eat “Goldfish.”
I marvel at how removing available options revs up the ingenuity.
- Dried apricots (1 for the body, 1/2 for tail fin, and 1/4 for top fin)
- Currants (cut in half for eye and some for bubbles out of mouth)
- Sliver of red apple peel (for the mouth)
- Raw honey for “glue”
- Blueberries for the water underneath the fish
Make a “school” of these fish to take to school for preschool snack!
Wishing you a lovely day!
The preschool snack coordinator (that’s me) has decided to work through the alphabet with snacks. Yesterday it was apples, and today it is bananas. My girls and I had a blast making these. Unfortunately, we didn’t have lots of time, or I can see these “Bad Boys” with fruit roll up capes and green lettuce or dried black currant hair. If you are on a special diet excluding candy eyes, you’ll have to improvise the eyes–you could use real craft googly eyes glued on with almond butter or just draw them on with a marker.
I used candy eyes, icing to hold them on, a banana, a red permanent marker, wooden skewers cut in half, and a styrofoam ring to stick them into. Enjoy life and have a blast!
