Fun Kids Foods – Lambie Watermelon Snack

lambie watermelon snack mom envy kids snack
Carl loves Lambie from DocMcstuffins. I think that I am actually more into the show than he is (I think it’s adorable!) My Mom bought him a Doc McStuffins Flap book and he is obsessed with finding the characters. His favorites are Lambie and Hallie so I was excited to make this snack for him. She was harder to make than I realized but definitely easier than Hallie would be.

 

As most parents, I am always searching for a way to get more fruits and vegetables into my kids. I have found that making their food fun and exciting can get them to eat something they may otherwise be uninterested in. I have total Mom Envy over the amazing creations I see on instagram. Kitchen Fun with my 3 Sons always has some great inspiration (I get nothing for sharing her site, she has no idea who I am. I just really love her creations).

When it came to making Lambie, I found that I needed very few ingredients. Sprinkles have become a staple in my kid food creations. They are the perfect for small details. I used black sprinkles from my Halloween pack as her eyes lashes and a pink confetti sprinkle for her nose from my spring pack. Then I just used some watermelon, raisins, and whipped cream. (Instructions below)
