Get Creative

Finger foods are fun to make, so why not get a little creative.  Let the kids make their own funny face fruit plates with blueberry eyes, melon ball noses, banana mouths or however they want to make them.  Then find your favorite fruit dip and have at it!

Mini Sandwiches & Bagels

Make a sandwich and cut it out with cookie cutters or cut the crust off the bread and cut into fourths (or use crackers) and let kids add their own little pieces of cheese, lunch meat, bacon, or peanut butter and jelly (or honey or bananas)  You can do the same thing with the mini bagels, though you may try cream cheese and sweeter toppings such as fruit and nuts.  And don’t forget pitas and tortillas.

Dips

Chip dips, Cracker dips, Fruit dips, you name it.

Rice Krispy Treats & Chex Mix

Everyone loves a good rice krispy treat and the kids can even decorate them with M&M’s or other sprinkles/candies and cut them out with cookie cutters.  And you can’t go wrong with Chex Mixes either, whatever variety.

Stuffed Stuff

Stuffed mushrooms, stuffed peppers, etc.

Fudge

You can’t go wrong with a good delicious fudge.

Muffins, Cupcakes, Cookies, Brownies

We won’t tell if you just grab a Betty Crocker mix and bake up some yummy little treats.  The kids will have a blast decorating them when you’re done and you won’t have to make a big mess and use every dish in the house just to make the batter.

Kabobs

Let the kids pick their own ingredients for their very own kabobs (they can be fruit or meat & veggie for the bbq)  You can even teach your preschoolers about patterns in the process.
