I told my kids this was the “Year of Eating Vegetables.” Since they weren’t too thrilled with that idea, I’ve had to be creative with my presentation. REALLY CREATIVE!! ha! This Veggie Bouquet was my latest idea. What do you think?
What you’ll need:
- Small vases, cups, jars or orange juice glasses.
- Vegetables your kids like, plus celery for the stems and lettuce for leaves.
- cream cheese (optional to use as glue)
- flower shaped cookie cutter (I used one for play dough!) You could try these cool vegetable cutters.
You can also make fruit bouquets for those picky eaters.
Easy to make!
Just fill the cups with the celery, then stick the vegetables on the toothpicks and the toothpicks into the celery stalks.
I used cream cheese as my glue to stick the pieces of carrots onto the cucumber flower. The lettuce leaves are placed around for cuteness.
Great activity for kids!
Serve these cute treats at parties too! My daughter had a blast making these with me. She even took some bites of veggies! YAY! It’s the “Year of the Vegetable” is going pretty good so far:-)
Remember this sweet Welcome Spring Tea Party? I am planning to do this with my cute veggie bouquets soon. I can’t wait!
