Build Your Own

The children love to assemble this snack on their own.

Have the children spread the strawberry yogurt on the white portion of one side of both apples, this becomes the gums of the mouth. Have the children line up the mini marshmallows to create the teeth and then top with the second apple.

 

Enjoy!!
