Maple Leaf Snacks

ages 2-6


White frosting or cream cheese, small bowls for each color of frosting you are going to make food coloring (reds, oranges, yellows and green are easiest), maple leaf shaped cookies or graham crackers, spoon or other child safe utensil for spreading

Activity Detail

Create a fun, fall-themed snack out of maple leaf shaped cookies or graham crackers. Add a few drops of food coloring to ready-made white frosting or cream cheese. See how many "fall" colors you and your child can create (all shades of browns, reds, oranges, yellows, and deep greens). Have your child create his or her fall snack by spreading the colored frosting/cream cheese onto the cookies with a spoon or child-safe utensil.

If you cannot find leaf-shaped cookies, use roll-out dough and cookie cutters to make your own. Adds another element of "made it myself" to the activity.

My daughter loved to tell her brother what colors falling leaves could be. It was a good lesson about why leaves that fall from aren't purple or blue!

Another option would be to use a leaf shaped cookie cutter to make bread cutouts for mini tea sandwiches.
