Ants on a Log AND Apple Smiles - Letter "A"

Olivia, my almost three-year-old daughter, and I are having a blast studying her ABC"D"s (as she calls it)! We made two simple no bake recipes for Letter "A": Ants on a Log and Apple Smiles.

Letter "A" Recipe #1:

Ants on a Log

Celery stalks
Peanut Butter

Cut stalks into pieces about 2 inches long. Spread peanut butter across the pieces and then add raisins.

1. Cut two apples into eight slices each.
2. Remove the apple cores.

4. Place marshmallows between two apple slices.
5. Grin back at your Apple Smile:)
