Crush a few graham crackers into crumbs. Peel a banana and cut in half crosswise. Insert a popsicle in flat end. Spread with peanut butter and roll in graham cracker crumbs. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
For each child, place a crisp lettuce leaf on a plate. Place a canned pear half upside down on lettuce. Make a bunny face using 2 raisins for eyes, a red cinnamon candy for a nose, and 2 blanched almonds for ears. (You could also use small carrot sticks.) Add a dip of cottage cheese for a fluffy tail. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
