Hi crafting friends! I’m delighted to share a fun WEATHER snack today about rainbows and clouds! It’s a fun treat that kids can assemble themselves in under 2 minutes!
But first, let me introduce myself…I’m Kristen Duke, and I share the ideas in my head over at Capturing Joy. If you need photo tips, want to see my favorite family recipes, travel adventures, or check out our home tour, I’d love to have you! I live in Austin Texas and have 4 fabulous children and a handy husband that helps me with the projects in my head.
Now, back to the rainbow snack. I altered an idea I saw from a kindergarten site, and got my girls involved in the process.
Here is what you need:
- graham crackers
- blue frosting
- rainbow airhead
I made them first, to make sure it all went as I thought it would in my head. I used 2 sizes of marshmallows for fun, you can just use one if you’d like.
In order for the rainbow airhead to stand up, it helps to have a thicker layer of frosting, and putting the marshmallow clouds down first to “book end” the rainbow and hold it in place. I also trimmed down the rainbow just a touch so it wasn’t too long.
My 6 year old daughter was able to whip hers together, easy, and she thought it was so fun!
She loved the 2 sizes of marshmallows
She also really loved eating her creation!
If you’re talking about weather, or just want to make a fun snack with your kids, try out the Graham Cracker Rainbow Snack!
