Smiling Snacks

Food is so fun to eat when it's smiling at you!  There are lots of ways you can make food look more interesting, but sometimes it's even more fun to let your child make the faces.  Place all the serving dishes in front of your child (or put all the pieces on a serving tray), hand him a paper towel or plate, and invite him to make some faces.  Or, if you're feeling Halloweenish, invite him to make Monster Faces!

Some fun combinations to try:

* raisins and bananas (The picture was created by a 4-year old)
* raisins and bread spread with peanut butter
* pretzels and grapes
* dried cranberries and graham crackers
* Chex Mix and string cheese
* yogurt and strawberries
* celery "pennies" and small flour tortillas spread with peanut butter
