Ant Snacks


“Ants in the sand” Place one whole graham cracker in a Ziploc and seal it, releasing extra air. Crush the cracker either with hands or a small rolling pin. Count your choice of number of raisins (ants!) and add to the Ziploc. Reseal and gently shake…”Ants in the sand”!


Ants on a Stump!!

The children really enjoy this twist on an old time favorite, ants on a log. I take apples and slice them in circular shapes, the children then take their peanut butter, spread it and sprinkle with raisins.


Here is an oldie…..but goodie!

Ants or bugs on a log

Needed: Raisins (ants) or prunes (bugs), celery, peanut butter (make sure no one in your class is allergic)

Give each child a piece of celery. Have the children wash and dry their celery. Next, have them spread peanut butter on the celery and put either their ants (raisins) or their bugs (prunes). Eat up!!!

You could also use cream cheese if you have children in your class who are allergic to peanut butter.
