My kids inherited my sweet tooth. So we’re always searching for snacks that they love and are great alternatives to sugary food, especially around the holidays. I mean, what kid doesn’t walk through the aisles at the grocery store and want to grab all of the adorable Easter candy?! So I’m beating my kids at their own game and making one of their favorite snacks even more adorable — it’s a win-win. These little bunnies are made with Wonderful Halos mandarins (which we pretty much always have around our home when they’re in season from October through May), and they’re a perfect healthy treat during the Easter season.
What You’ll Need:
- Wonderful Halos mandarins
- white and pink cardstock
- glue stick
- glue dots
- small pompoms
Make Time: 5 Minutes (for a whole batch of bunnies!)
Step 1: Cut out your paper shapes. You’ll need two white ears, two pink inner ears, and a little rectangle for whiskers on each bunny.
Step 2: Use a glue stick to attach the pink inner ears to the white ears. Cut out little notches at the bottom of each ear to create a small tab that will insert into the mandarin.
Step 3: Use a clean knife to cut two small slits in the peel of the mandarin. Insert the bunny ears into the slits.
Step 4: Use a glue dot to attach a white pompom tail to the back of the Halos mandarin.
Step 5: Cut fringe on either side of the rectangle that you’ll use for the whiskers. After we cut ours, we fanned out the fringe a little bit to look more “whiskery.” 😉 Attach a small pink pompom to the center of the whiskers with a glue dot. Then attach the whiskers to the front of the mandarin with another glue dot.
That’s it! These little bunny snacks are ready to hop onto your kiddo’s snack plate! These would be the perfect thing to bring if you’re a mom on snack duty at school or on a playdate. They’re sweet, seedless, and the Halos are always easy for little hands to peel. I can just imagine these at a school Easter or spring party, and I have a feeling the kiddos would go crazy for them. I always feel like a supermom when I bring a healthy snack that the kids also love. It’s nice to know that you’re teaching and encouraging children to take control of their health and make good choices that will last a lifetime. Happy snacking! xoxo
