A House for Hermit Crab Unit Study Snack Idea
For me A House for Hermit Crab snack ideas were pretty easy! As you can see above everything is in a underwater theme.
We did peanut butter and jelly starfish sandwiches. I used the Star Cookie Cutter found HERE. You can have an underwater lunch without goldfish crackers. We did a counting and sorting by color activity with ours.
For the ocean we have some blueberry yogurt which my kids enjoyed dunking their goldfish into! Then for fun I made a seas urchin from a peeled cutie orange and toothpicks. Then just use some fresh herbs as ‘seaweed' to decorate the plate and you are good to go!
The kids loved the lunch a re read the book to them while they ate and got excited to see certain characters on their plates while they ate! This was a great way to end out A House for Hermit Crab Unit Study.
