Making Snacktime Fun with Butterfly Crackers

When I pick up my kids from school the one thing on their minds as we head home is, “What’s for snack?” All of the learning and activities they did between lunch and the end of their school day has left them starving and it’s up to me to help satiate their hunger.

Finding snacks they both like can be difficult but when I put a little effort into it I can usually please both of them. All it takes is 5 minutes and a little scrounging in the fridge and pantry to create a fun and simple snack for them to enjoy while they work on homework or play a game.

By grabbing an apple, some cheese, and a stack of RITZ® crackers, I was able to make some cute snacks for my kids to munch on along with their carrots and snap peas. They had fun helping me assemble them and even made a few creations of their own!

Here’s what we did to make our butterfly crackers:

How to Make Butterfly Crackers

What You Need:

  • RITZ® crackers
  • Sliced Cheddar cheese (or any cheese)
  • Sliced apples
  • Small round circle cutter

Butterfly Crackers
What You Do:

1. Slice apples into round pieces. Cut out circles out of the apples. Cut circles in half to form the butterfly wings.

2. Cut cheese slices into 1 inch and 1/4 inch strips to make the body and antennae of the butterfly.

3. Grab your RITZ® crackers and place the apple pieces on the crackers to form the wings. Then take a 1 inch piece of cheese and place in the middle of the apple pieces. Add 2 1/4 inch pieces of cheese to the top to form your butterfly’s antennae.

4. Set out with other delicious snacks to enjoy after school!

  3. Such a cute and clever snack idea! I know my kids would be so excited to see these after school. And yes, asking for a snack and something to drink is the first thing they say when they get off that bus. #client
