Spring is upon us and our flowers are in bloom. With our blooming flowers, come some buzzy little friends too—bees! We’ve seen all kinds of bees buzzing around our flowers lately and the kids aren’t really fans of them! I decided to make them a friendly little bee snack to try to get them to realize that maybe they’re not all that bad! Well, the kids liked the snack, but they still don’t like the bees! Oh well, you can’t win them all. Here’s how I made this sweet and easy little snack:
What you’ll need:
1 white tortilla
half an apricot
1 slice of pineapple
1 piece of fruit leather (dried fruit)
2 icing eyes
circle cookie cutter (or use the open end of a drinking glass)
sharp kitchen knife
1. Grab your slices of pineapple and apricot and put them on a plate for the bee’s head (apricot) and the bee’s body (pineapple).
2. Slice the fruit leather into thin strips for the bee stripes. Cut shapes for the stinger, the antennae, the mouth and cheeks. Place all these pieces on your bee.
3. Cut 4 circles our of the tortilla using the cookie cutter or glass. Place these around the bee as wings.
4. Grab your 2 blueberries and stick them on top of the bee’s antennae.
5. Finally, place your icing eyes on the apricot so your bee can see!
My kids may not like the real thing, but it’s hard not to like this adorable little snack! Enjoy!
