Teddy bear toast is a quick and easy breakfast or snack for preschoolers. Encourage your little ones to eat a healthy treat with toast that looks like a bear.
My daughter is the pickiest eater I know. When she was younger, I was always looking for creative ways to get her to eat healthy foods. Teddy bear toast was a favorite!
This sweet treat is healthy so you won’t feel guilty about dressing up breakfast!
How to Make Teddy Bear Toast
All you need to get this snack started is bread, peanut butter (or Nutella), raisins, and a banana.
Toast the bread in your toaster or toaster oven.
Spread some creamy peanut butter or Nutella on the warm toast. You could use marshmallow fluff to make a polar bear, too.
Cut the banana into slices. Put one in each of the top corners of the bread and one in the center for a nose.
Add three raisins to make eyes and a nose. (For a really sweet treat, you could use mini chocolate chips instead of raisins.)
Then you’re all ready to go!
What else can you do?
This snack is perfect all on its own. Your kids will definitely get a kick out of making this toast themselves. Or, you could surprise them with teddy bear toast for a fun afternoon snack.
This snack is also a great way to get kids excited to learn more about bears. They can do that by listening to you read books about bears and teddy bears. One of our favorite bear-themed books for little kids is Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?by Bill Martin, Jr. Read that with your kiddos, and then let them do some fun hands-on activities to learn about colors.
You can enhance your bear-themed studies with this amazing collection of bear activities. Discover crafts, printables, books, and much more.
