Fairy Tales Foods The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Fisherman and His Wife, The Snowman, and Cinderella

The Three Little Pigs Trail Mix is very quick and easy to make.

Just mix potato sticks (straw),

pretzel sticks (sticks),

and chocolate squares (bricks).


Tip: so simple; no tip!


 Jack and the Beanstalk Magic Beans are probably the simplest of these fairy foods.

Simply, and very carefully, split open the pea pod, scrape out the peas (which are yummy, btw), and insert jelly beans or any round candies. A simple activity but it is visually cute.

Tip: buy large pea pods, much easier to work with.


 The Fisherman and His Wife Fishing Poles looked easy.
NO! Epic Pinterest fail. The licorice ropes kept breaking.

We ended up using yarn as our fishing line. Still a cute idea.

Tip: cut string lengths to varying sizes ahead of time to avoid empty wait time doing this project. Varying string sizes make the finished projects look better for pics.


 Feels weird writing about snowmen when I am in the midst of a North Carolina summer – can you say hot, humid, and buggy?!

Anyway, The Snowman Snowmen are another quick and easy Fairy Tales food to make.

Skewer powdered donuts

and decorate your snowman.


 Another super quick and easy fairy tale treat is Cinderella pumpkins. Grab cuties or halos (which, btw, are mandarins not tangerines - who knew?!)

and a bit of celery. Peel the cuties but don't separate. Then put a sprig of celery in the top to act as a stem. Whalah, a pumpkin!

Tip: remind kids to not pull apart the cutie once peeling is complete.

 Need a more involved Cinderella treat? Make a Cinderella carriage. You'll need a round bun or boule, whole wheat bread slices, small and large round cookie cutters, toothpicks, vegetable dip mix, and cut up vegetables.
Using fingers, make a well in the top of the boule (carriage).

Save the bread for dipping later. Use the cookie cutters to cut four small and four large circles (carriage wheels). Then attach the wheels, smaller ones on the outside, to the bottom of the carriage. Prepare the dip as directed on the pkg and dip away with some yummy veggies

Tip: make the dip ahead of time. It firms up in the frig which makes it easier to dip into the carriage well.
