Snack–Build a Tortilla Tree

Our ‘make-a-snack’ this week was to build a tree using a tortilla triangle,
              celery slices, carrot sticks and dried cranberries.
There was also Garden Vegetable cream cheese to spread on the tortilla
                                    to hold it together.
With the parents help the children followed the recipe picture by picture.
The children tried new skills and their grown ups stood back but were there
                                   if support was needed.
Another interesting thing I noticed was that most of the children ate the celery.  It was cut into small slices which made it manageable to eat in one bite compared to the large pieces we used last week for Bugs on a Log.  I’ll have to remember that for future snacks.
