Can’t Go to the Beach… EAT the Beach!

My little man had his first full day of school, a practice day for next year. When asked, do you like Kindergarten days or First Grade Days better, he said, “First grade days!” So that is good. It was nice not to rush away from my two free hours to go pick him up at 11:30.

Anyhow, today was beach day at school. I got called to make the snack. Of course I was excited… I came with these little beach cups of pure yummy-ness! for the lable on the cup, I cropped a picture of his teacher and put a graphic of sunglasses and a beach hat over her picture along with the title, “Piatt’s Edible Beach – Swim at your own risk!”

Inside the cups were little beaches. Basically pudding and crushed vanilla oreos (sand) layered in a clear plastic cup. The top layer, I added some blue icing for the water and a fish shaped fruit snack to swim in the sea of icing… Also, the plastic palm tree is from Oriental Trading.

If you would like the recipe, read my post here from last summer. This is the recipe I used.

My son said that the kids laughed at the picture of his teacher & everyone wanted more! So I guess they were a hit.

These would be fun for a picnic this summer!
