Every day when I pick my boys up from school they come running over begging to have friends come home with them. Which means, until recently, every day at 3:15 I’m gripped by PLAY DATE PANIC! It’s not the extra kids I mind, it’s more a question of “what do I feed them?” Because, as all parents know, after school they are starving.
Unfortunately my kids will never open their lunch boxes and find a replica of Fenway Park somehow artfully created out of a sandwich, or a teddy bear made out of fruit salad, or even a puppy made out of rice balls. ( Sorry kids, mommy is lacking both the talent and time to create edible lunch art.) BUT these two easy snacks are right up my alley — healthy, cute and quick!
A couple of spooky little surprises for their school snack: pumpkin muffins and clementine “spiders”.
