It’s Tasty Treats Tuesday! Today I am showing you how we made a healthy, fruity turtle snack. We made our turtle snack during our unit on fables. It was perfect for the Tortroise and the Hare!
You will need 1 apple per 2 students. 5 Toothpicks per student. 5 grapes per student.
Step 1: cut the apple in half. This is the teacher’s job. No knives to the little ones! Even I don’t do that…lol.
Step 2: Students insert 4 toothpicks on the sides. 2 per side. These are the legs. We pushed the toothpicks about halfway into the apple. Push the 5th toothpick into the front of the apple for the head.
Step 3: push the grapes onto the toothpicks!
BAM! Turtle snack! Fun, healthy and honestly, it makes a darn cute turtle!
BEFORE EATING THE TURTLE: I HAD THE ‘STACHES REMOVE ALL OF THE GRAPES AND PULL OUT THE TOOTHPICKS. I CHECKED EACH APPLE TO MAKE SURE ALL THE TOOTHPICKS WERE OUT! Safety first kids!

I had a Submission For Smorgie question about Foodie Fun Friday so I thought it would be super fun to answer that question on Tasty Treat Tuesday. I’m sorry Jenea. I know I butchered your name. I tried real real hard though! Thanks for the great question!
