Tips for Fun Snack Projects with KidsWorking on snack projects with kids is so much fun, but it can be a challenge. If you choose to involve your kids, I have a few suggestions for you.
- Expect a mess. Put your child's long hair up, wash little hands, and have them wear washable clothes.
- Prepare the food beforehand. For little ones, the real fun is in the decorating, so do as much of the prep work as you can before you involve the kids.
- Keep basic supplies on hand. I'm embarrassed to tell you how many types of sprinkles I have. We eat really healthy, but when we celebrate, there are always sprinkles involved. It's nice to have a little supply of food decorations. You know, for emergencies.
- Set the food to be decorated on a child-size table or on a plastic table cloth on the floor. Nothing ruins the food decorating fun faster than having a child fall off a kitchen stool. Your kids will be intent on their decorating task. They may not remember they're standing high above the ground. (Don't ask me how many children fell off chairs before I realized this!)
- It's OK to do easy. We eat vegan and gluten-free, so I make many of our foods from scratch. But for special celebrations, there's nothing wrong with easy, store-made foods and decorations!

- I recommend printing on white cardstock so the base and star will be more durable and they'll stand up.
- You'll need to cut the base and stars out so you can use them. I cut around them, leaving a small white margin. I don't suggest trying to cut on the line. Also, if your children are small, you may want to cut the bases and stars out yourself beforehand.
