For our family night last night, we made Apple Critters. It's something I used to do in elementary school when I would come home from school and want a snack. Of course, I couldn't just make a snack like a normal kid; I had to play with my food. Now I'm teaching my kids to do it too.
- chocolate chips,
- and a ziplock bag with the tip cut off one corner and filled with peanut butter.
I made a sample for my kids and then gave them the supplies to get to work on their own Apple Critters. With toothpicks involved, this is not an activity I would walk away from with the kids being so little still.

The finished products (Abby's has the crazy hair and Isaac's is a five-eyed alien).
Time to eat!
Abby even had a few bites of the apple (Isaac bolted after the last marshmallow was eaten)!
