Healthy Yummy Lady Bug Snack

Here’s a fun healthy Lady Bug snack mom and kids can make and what an adorable presentation.

What you will need to start:

  • Ritz crackers
  • Cream cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Black paste food coloring or cut up black olives
  • Chives
  • Toothpicks

Cooking directions:

In a bowl, have the kids add in a bit of cream cheese and a small amount of black paste coloring, and mix. If you don’t have black food coloring paste, you can cut up tiny pieces of black olives.

Set aside for now.

Next, have the kids spread cream cheese on top of the crackers.

Cut the cherry tomatoes up and have the kids place 2 tomato quarters on top of the cream cheese.

For the Ladybug head, have the kids place an olive at the top of the tomatoes.

For the antennas, have the children stick 2 chive pieces inside the olives.

almost there!    Kids can take a toothpick and dip it into the cream cheese and black paste coloring mixture that’s in the bowl and use it to make dots all over the ladybugs. Or have them place the black olive bits all over.
