We have had record pollen counts here in Atlanta, GA with 8,164 particles of pollen per cubic meter of air!! There is yellow everywhere you look along with puffy eyes & sneezing! We thought this would be a good time to make a fun Bee Hive Fruit Snack and teach my 2 year old about bees! A great way to get your little picky eaters to eat some fruit for a after school snack!
Bee Hive Fruit Snack
4 Dark Grapes
1 Yellow Starburst
1 Mini Marshmallow
Slice the banana and place the slices on a plate in a hive shape. Cut the dark grapes in half. Place 3 halves on the bottom of the hive. Make bees with the other halves. We made our stripes by microwaving a yellow Star Burst for 6 seconds. Flatten out with your fingers and cut in strips using kitchen scissors. Place the strips on top of the dark grape halves. We also cut little pieces for the antennas. Cut a mini marshmallow in 4 pieces to make wings!
Note...Pineapples would also work well with this, but my 2 year old is a banana boy!:)
