My 2nd son has always been a little bit obsessed with robots. From the moment he could talk he made up a “robot” song and dance and we heard it non-stop for about a year. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever. Then he taught himself to beat-box to go along with the robot song and he entertained everyone he could find. Sometimes I wish for those days again. So naturally when he had his 6th birthday and had the chance to bring snacks to his kindergarten class we had to look for something along the lines of robots. This juice box robot was the perfect snack!
How to Make a Juice Box Robot
Perfect for a Robot Party
Stick pretzels for arms
Juice boxes for the bodies
Applesauce for the heads(make sure they have a foil lid and not plastic or it will melt)
Starburst or other square candy for feet (I’ve even seen them made with small raisin boxes for feet.)
Plastic wrap for attaching arms
Google eyes for, well…the eyes
Spoon to attach to the back for antennae.
Use a piece of scotch tape to attach pretzel arms to juice box and then put a dab of hot glue on the tape to attach the applesauce head. Add some google eyes and tape a spoon to the back and, Voila, we have ourselves a fun robot snack.
These were a complete hit at Kindergarten except I heard the kids had more fun playing with them than eating them. 😉
What fun snack ideas have you made for your kids?
My sons other obsession this year was Angry Birds and you can read all about his Angry Birds birthday party here:
