Angel Snack



We have a sweet baby girl with a Christmas birthday. This time of year children are being given loads and loads of sugar. I wanted to do something special for Hurricane's birthday snack at school, but I didn't want to send in more cupcakes or cookies. Therefore, I made fruit and cheese angels. They are the CUTEST snack! All you need are snack size ziplock bags, grapes or any other fruit, cheese, and fun glitter pipe cleaners. Put cheese on one side of the snack bag and your fruit on the other side. Cinch in the middle and wrap a pipe cleaner around it. Twist one end of the pipe cleaner to look like a halo. Now you have a cute and healthy and snack!

For some reason I am not able to post a picture right now so come back later to see!

This sounds like a great idea, I find myself (as an adult) feeling overloaded with sugar and sweets this time of year, I might make a few of these to pack in my lunch!

Adorable! I'm a Christmas birthday, too, the day after to be exact. My 40th this year....please, no combined gifts or cards!! I was born 2 months early so my mom won't take credit for my awful birthday. You are so creative. Love your idea.
