Ocean Snacks


How about just plain old…. Peanut butter and “jelly fish” sandwiches!


Ocean or Aquarium Snack: Using one graham cracker, spread cake icing tinted blue. Over all of the graham cracker, then you may add the little Goldfish crackers, or whales. We used fruit rollups and cut them into seaweed shapes Then we added the small sprinkles that you add to cakes or cupcakes for coral, or aquarium rocks. The children loved it we did have some children that didn’t even want to eat them so they took theirs home in a ziplock baggie.


When studying the color blue (or Oceans), make blue Jell-O (place gummy fish/shark in before chilling), put whip cream on top for waves. Serve in individual clear cups.
