  1. Sandwiches and Wraps: Keep it simple and delicious with classic sandwiches or wraps. Let your kids choose their favorite fillings, like turkey and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or even a veggie-packed hummus wrap. Get creative with fun shapes using cookie cutters!

  2. Fruit Skewers: Bright and colorful fruit skewers are not only visually appealing but also a healthy and refreshing option. Thread chunks of watermelon, pineapple, grapes, and strawberries onto wooden skewers for a sweet and satisfying treat.

  3. Mini Pizzas: Who doesn't love pizza? Make mini pizzas by using English muffins or pita bread as the base, spreading tomato sauce, and topping with shredded cheese and their favorite toppings like pepperoni, veggies, or even pineapple!

  4. Ants on a Log: A classic kids' favorite, ants on a log are a fun and nutritious snack. Spread peanut butter or cream cheese onto celery sticks and top with raisins or dried cranberries. You can also switch it up by using almond butter or sunflower seed butter for a nut-free option.

  5. Trail Mix: Create a custom trail mix by combining their favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and even a few chocolate chips. Let your kids help you mix and match the ingredients for a personalized and delicious snack.

  6. Veggie and Dip Cups: Cut up an assortment of veggies like carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes, and place them in individual cups. Serve with hummus, ranch dressing, or tzatziki for a healthy and satisfying snack.

  7. No-Bake Energy Bites: Whip up a batch of no-bake energy bites using oats, peanut butter, honey, and chocolate chips. These little bites are perfect for a quick and energizing snack during your picnic adventure.
