Tasty Turtles


During your unit on turtles (or water animals), try serving this simple snack. Given the supplies needed, most children can create it themselves.

  • Give each child a Ritz cracker.
  • Let children use plastic knives to spread peanut butter or cream cheese on one side of the cracker.
  • Invite students to break pieces of pretzel sticks and place into the peanut butter to create the turtle's legs and tail.
  • Place a jelly bean or gum drop onto the peanut butter for the head. Yum!
