Looking to make snack time fun? Try making your kids favorite animal out of toast and fruit.


Start by writing down what fruit you have available to you. With grocery stores low on supplies these days, it's understandable to be limited on the fruits you may have. If you don't have a supply, try using what you have and cut to shape.


The critters will be rated from easiest to hardest below. Challenge yourself and give it a try.


Monkey

Supplies:

Toast

Hazelnut Spread

Orange-Lips

Blueberries-Eyes


Easy Level:

10/10


Anyone can do this food craft. It was so simple and quick. If you want an alternative to blueberries try chocolate chips, or any round berry. In place of oranges you could use apples, strawberries, or banana.


Lion

Supplies:

Toast

Peanut Butter

Blueberries-Eyes

Orange-Mane

Strawberries-Ears


Easiness:

9/10


Cut the edges off of some small strawberries and peel and orange for this one. It's extremely easy and really fun too.

If you have apples or more strawberries you could use that as an alternative to the mane.


Cat

Supplies:

Toast

Peanut Butter

Blueberries-Eyes

Strawberries-Ears, Nose, and Whiskers

Banana-Mouth


Easiness:

8/10


Cut strawberry slices for the ears, julienne strips for the whiskers and a small triangle for the nose. Cut a small slender slice of banana for the mouth. This food craft uses a bit more precise cuts but it's still overall easy.


Shark

Supplies:

Toast

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Chocolate Chip-Eye

Strawberries-Scales and Head

Banana-Fin and Teeth


Easiness:

6/10


Layer strawberry slices for the scales and fins. Use a banana slice for the tale and a zig zag cut of banana for the teeth. The slipperiness of the strawberries makes this one a bit more of a challenge. Placing the scales can be a bit tricky but overall it was really fun. Just put down some spread on the toast as an adhesive for the scales. The kids had a lot of fun with this one.
