Make Your Own Fruit & Veggie Bug Snacks
- Candy Eyes
- 3 Celery Stalks
- 1 Cup Red/Green Grapes
- 4 Strawberries
- 1/2 Cup Blueberries
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
- 3 Celery Stalks
- 10 Cucumber Slices
- 1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes
- 1 Cup Grape Tomatoes
- 1/2 Cream Cheese
- 1 Bunch Chives
- 10 Whole Cashews
Step 1: Begin by creating faces for your snacks. Let’s start with the veggie bugs! Attach a pair of candy eyes to a cashew or cherry tomato using a dab of cream cheese. You can create a face for your fruit bugs by cutting a grape in half. Use peanut butter to attach the candy eyes and set aside for later.
Step 2: Create your body by cutting up the celery stalks. Trim the bottom so that it sits flat on the plate.
Step 3: Fill the celery stalk with cream cheese for the veggie bugs. This will be how you “glue” the rest of the body in place. We used a combination of grape tomatoes and cucumber. Create wings by slicing cucumbers and cutting them in half. You can even create some antennae using small snippets of chive.
Step 4: You’ll be using peanut butter to “glue” the body in place for your fruit bugs. We used a combination of grapes and blueberries here. You can also create a few pairs of wings by using slices of strawberries and cutting them in half.
Step 5: Serve, play, eat, and enjoy!
