Funky Apple Monsters

It’s not always easy to get kids to eat their fruit and we so love to share fun fruit ideas here on The Inspiration Edit. Today I have a quick and easy tutorial for making Funky Apple Monsters. These are great as an afternoon snack, a Halloween party or as a fun activity in the home. This is a guest post contributed to our blog by Brooke.

Let’s Make It 

 Cut the apple into quarters. Lay the apple quarters down, and cut a 1 inch wedge in the middle of the peel side of each quarter.

Lay the apple quarters down, and cut a 1 inch wedge in the middle of the peel side of each quarter. Do not cut all the way through because you want each quarter to stay in one piece. It will look like a mouth.

Cut the strawberries in slices lengthwise so that you have 4 pieces.

Spread peanut butter on the bottom of each mouth, inside the cutout.

Place a strawberry inside the cutout to resemble a tongue sticking out.

Poke 6 or 7 sunflowers into the top edge of the cut out to resemble teeth.

  1. For one, JIF is our favorite peanut butter ever! Two, my kids would eat anything that had a silly face like this 😛

  2. Eeek! Those are so cute! My youngest is the worst! All she wants are “snacks,” never an actual meal. I think it’s a preschooler thing. But getting some protein in her thanks to the peanut butter would be great.
