With a Peep Peep here, and a Peep Peep there: An Easter-themed snack for a Cub Scouts meeting
For weeks our first grader has been reminding me that soon it would be our turn to bring the snack to Cub Scouts. I haven’t focused much on it, but he has been taking it very seriously.
Our turn came the Wednesday before Easter—Spy Wednesday—so I suggested we should bring pretzels. Pretzels are very Lenten, of course.
A certain Cub Scout I know wasn’t convinced that was adequate.
Pretzels and apple crushers, I suggested?
That wasn’t enough either.
He reeled off a list of foods I could make. It sounded like fun—and a fair amount of work.
Then one of my friends mentioned she was making peep kabobs for a school treat.
Peep kabobs? That sounded like something even I could handle without too much effort. There are elaborate ones online
that are far superior to what I designed, but I was fairly sure the Cub Scouts wouldn’t be Googling or Pinteresting to compare.
So I took grapes, watermelon chunks, skewers, and some peeps—the bunny kind—and assembled them. I used wax paper between the layers and refrigerated them all day. I didn’t deliver them myself to the children since my husband handled going to the actual Cub Scouts meeting, but he said the children loved them.
I did also include pretzels and string cheese because you certainly can’t send a snack without multiple food groups. And our little Cub Scout was so proud.
I think I’m off the hook now for the rest of the year. Well, except for the camping trip I'm going on in a few weeks. Anyone want to offer camping tips?
