Wagon, Cars, and Boats Snack

For our snack today we made our own transportation vehicles. YUMMY!!
For these boats.....just cut your hard-boiled egg in half lengthwise. Remove the yolk and mix with mayonnise and parmesian cheese. Fill the egg cavity with yolk mixture. You can use toothpicks or celery strips to help the cheese stand up as the sail. VOILA - you've got yourself the cutest edible boat that the kids go crazy for!!
I realize I'm not the best picture taker, but these will have to do!! These wagon/cars are pretty self explanatory. Basically you can fill your celery with ranch or peanut butter, stick toothpicks in for the axels and stick on your carrots and raisins. If you want a wagon, stick the toothpick out the front with a raisin on the end for the handle. If you want a car stick the toothpick standing up tall with a carrot for the steering wheel. OR you can let the kids explore for themselves how or what they would like to make!!
Happy car making!!
