Dinosaur Food: Digging for Dinosaurs Snack
The best part of this snack is letting your kids help you create it. With a little supervision from Mom, older preschoolers can probably do most of it on their own.
And, of course, kids of all ages will want to eat it!
What You’ll Need
• 1 pkg Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
• 1 pkg Chocolate Rocks Candy
• 1 pkg Gummy Dinosaurs
• Mini Clothespins
• Glue Stick
• Green Paper
• Black Marker
• Green Candy Shred or Colored Coconut (Optional)
What You’ll Do
Prepare pudding according to package directions and set in the fridge for 20-30 minutes or until firm.
Cut small circles out of the paper and write Dinggin’ for Dinos on each one. Then, glue each circle onto the front of a clothespin.
Take the cookies apart and scrape off most of the white filling and discard. Crush the cookies until it looks like dirt.
Set the cups out and start layering the ingredients. Add a layer of crushed cookies, then a layer of pudding. Toss in some gummy dinosaurs and some chocolate rocks.
Repeat the layers again until the cups are full. Make sure you end with a little bit of cookie dirt, gummies, and chocolate rocks.
Clip one of your little signs on each cup, and sprinkle some green candy shred in a few places to look like grass.
Will you serve this dinosaur food for an afternoon snack or at your kiddo’s birthday party?
