These healthy bug and insect snacks make eating fruits and veggies so much more fun plus they are easy to pack, making great snacks for school lunches!
My little man had bugs and insect week at preschool, so naturally my brain got to thinking about fun snacks I could make and bring in for him and his classmates to enjoy. I am absolutely in love with how they turned out…plus they are HEALTHY so it’s a win win!

For each snack you will need:

–Microwave dish for melting chocolate
–Vegetable oil (if you’re chocolate is to thick, thin it with a DRIP of vegetable oil)

-Slice of apple
-Grape (green apple = green grape. red apple = purple grape.)

Here’s another version of ladybug snacks I’ve made.
Healthy Snail Snacks: what you need
-Vanilla cookies with frosting (ie: Oreos)
-Mini marshmallows (I used the colored ones in yellow and peach)
Aren’t they all just adorable?!??! I have to admit, I was pretty proud of myself – hahaha! And my sweet baby loved them! —> Making it all worth it! Another great snack for worms would be these that my daughter made!
As part of bug and insect week, the kiddos were asked to dress up as an insect. My little guy wasn’t super thrilled about dressing in a full blown costume like I wanted to make…but he settled for a homemade grasshopper shirt that I made the morning of! ;-p Nothing like last minute!
Ohh just seeing these pictures just makes me want to squeeze his little cheeks! I love him soooo much it’s not even funny!! I’m so super excited that we have another year of preschool coming up = aka = more excuses for me to make stuff! I am just SO not ready to leave this little stage of cuteness!
His sweet little friend was an adorable ladybug! I loved her costume! A black leotard, red skirt and pipe cleaner antennas on a headband. Such a great idea!!
Make sure you PIN these healthy bug and insect snacks!
