Summer Kid's Snack: Sharks On The Beach!

Start your Summer off right with a sweet and tasty treat that is sure to please your little ones (and they can help you make it!).

What you'll need:

-Vanilla Pudding (can also use yogurt)
-Crushed 'Nilla Wafers (can also use graham crackers) "Sand"
-Blue Sprinkles "Ocean"
-"Shark" fruit snacks available at Albertsons (Albertsons brand)

Assembly:

I put the 'Nilla wafers in a small plastic baggy that zips closed and I crushed them with the heavy end of a butter knife. We set everything out in bowls, ready to dish out. 1) Pudding 2) Top half of the pudding with sprinkles "water" and 3)the other half with the crushed wafer "sand". 4)Lay assorted shark snacks on top.5) Eat and enjoy!




To cut down on sugar and fat (I had sugar free pudding and reduced fat wafers.). It made me feel a little better, until they doused their snack with more sprinkles!! A good time was had by all!

  16. lol I just had to laugh... "to cut down on the sugar? There are pure sprinkles on there! And fruit snacks have no fruit and are typically made of High Fructose Corn Syrup.

    Oh well.

    It sure looks cute though! Very creative of you.

    God bless!
