Apple Smiles

A fall favorite and often the first cooking activity I did with kindergarteners, are these simple Apple Smiles.

Apples, Cut into Slice
Peanut Butter or Cream Cheese
Mini Marshmallows

Management Note: If you're worried about giving kids knives, even dull ones, a popsicle craft stick works well for spreading.
Spread each slice of apple with peanut butter.
Top with mini marshmellows. You can top with another slice of apple to complete your smile and have top and bottom lips. But ER just takes hers off immediately, so I don't bother.

An inexpensive and quick treat that's a fun beginning of the year center, easy for parents to run in the classroom, and ties in well with apple and orchard, harvest, and fall themes.

Katie, so cute! We will be making some of these soon...we will substitute the peanut butter for apple butter due to Lu's multitude of allergies.
