Tasty Trees and Things

The moms at littlenummies have come up with some really cute and easy-to-make Christmas snacks for picky-fingered kids (like the Healthy Snow Pea Trees, shown above...)

Not-so-healthy, but superyummy Frosting Candy Trees (made from sugar ice cream cones),

and Snowflake Cinnamon Crispas (sugar-cinnamon topped flour tortillas, baked in the oven... reminiscent of the old school Taco Bell treats from the 80s...taaaasty!)

As always, snacks can be a great starting-off point for learning: while eating, talk about colors, shapes, and make size comparisons. Further investigate trees and snowflakes with fun crafts, stories, and hands-on exploration!

Visit the littlenummies site for step-by-step instructions for the snacks shown here, and for even more fun, kidcentric holiday food ideas.

*Reminder for Pet Parents: Please remember that these (and most other) human foods are made for humans only, and should never be shared with our furry friends, most especially dogs.
