Introduction:There are countless simple and easy snacks that your child can enjoy making with you. Give them the chance to utilize their talents in the kitchen. Here are the top five simple, easy snacks even children can enjoy making.

  • 01

    Cream Cheese

    Give your child a package of cream cheese. Let them cut the cheese into small squares. If your child is too young to work with a knife, maybe you can let them use a plastic knife for cutting. This would surely be a much safer route to choose.

    Be sure that your child's hands are clean, and then let them use their hands to roll the cream cheese into little balls.

    If this is too simple of a recipe for your child, consider letting them add something to the cream cheese before rolling it. Either that, or you can let them roll these cheese balls over some chopped nuts or pecans.

  • 02

    Cucumbers

    You may have to do the cutting for this simple snack depending on the age of your child. Take a cucumber, and cut it in half lengthwise.

    Let your child spread a little cream cheese, cheddar cheese, or even peanut butter on these half cucumbers. They will simply enjoy doing this.

    Another thing that you can do for this snack is to let your eager child spray some Cheez Whiz on the top of the cucumber.

    This would be a great snack to make for parties and sleepovers. You can let each child make their very own. They will be sure to enjoy making these simple snacks.

  • 03

    Celery

    Cut some celery stalks, and have your child rinse them well. Let your child fill these celery stalks with peanut butter, cream cheese, or cheese spread.

    Feel free to use any other ingredients that you may choose. Maybe even ask your child what they would like to spread on these celery stalks. You may even want to add raisins to these healthy snacks.

    Spreading is a great task for your child to learn to do. It is great for bettering their coordination. The ability for your child to experiment in the kitchen is truly awesome.

    You may wish to exchange the celery for crackers. The list of toppings is practically endless.

  • 04

    Fruit Dip

    Make your own child recipes as you go. Use index cards, and organize these simple, easy snacks in a small box. You and your child can use this recipe box to prepare quick and easy recipes on days when your child is bored, on rainy days, or even on any day, just for the fun and excitement. Working in the kitchen is a great way of learning, sharing, and bonding.

    Teach your child to make a simple fruit dip. Experiment and enjoy your togetherness. An easy way to make fruit dip is to have your child add equal amounts of cream cheese and marshmallow cream together in a bowl. Be sure to mix well.

  • 05

    Fruit Wedges

    Let your child experiment with all sorts of cheeses, toppings, sauces, fruits, and vegetables. The list is endless, and they are certain to begin enjoying more foods with each recipe that they make no matter how simple that recipe may be.

    Cut an apple or a pear into several wedges. Let your child spread peanut butter or cream cheese on each wedge.

    One really great thing that you can try with these wedges is to let your child crush up some corn flakes in a small bowl. Then, let your child coat these fruit wedges with the crushed corn flakes.

    Always try to enjoy doing new things in the kitchen while involving your child in the activity.
