2 people made this

IngredientsServes: 4

  • 20 white grapes
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese, softened
  • 10 mini chocolate chips or white sugar shimmer pearls
  • bamboo skewers

MethodPrep:15min ›Ready in:15min

  1. Pick out the 5 nicest looking grapes. Place 2 small dollops of cream cheese on each one for the eyes and place a mini chocolate chip in the centre of each for the pupil.
  2. Thread 3 to 4 grapes, depending on the length of your skewers, lengthwise onto a skewer, followed by the grape with the eyes horizontally. Repeat with the other grapes.


Instead of cream cheese you can also use frosting, mascarpone, or icing sugar mixed with a little lemon juice. Or you can glue on sugar eyes.

Everyone loves macaroni and cheese, and now you can take it with you for you and your kids to enjoy without bowls and silverware to clean up. Enjoy this decadent bite-sized recipe for Mac and Cheese Balls. And if you don't want to take the time to pull out the fryer, try the Trader Joe's Mac and Cheese bites, which are delicious — we approve.

Refreshing, fun, and on a stick, these caterpillars are perfect to put a smile on your kids' faces, and then leave you smiling as they eat their fruit.

Grape Caterpillar Kabobs

Ingredients and Materials:

These are so easy to put together. Just put the grapes on your skewers, and using icing as “glue,” attach the candy eyes.

  1. First choose six grapes for the heads (make sure they are the best shapes)
  2. Place nine grapes lengthwise on each skewer and add the final “head” grape.
  3. Using the icing, place a dab on the back of each candy eye, and place two on each “head” grape.

Note: Watch small children around wooden skewers.

How to make green grape caterpillars

THESE CREEPY CRAWLY CATERPILLARS aren’t just a healthy Halloween treat, they’re also great for parties or lunch boxes any time of the year. I think I know three little people who are going to squeal when they see these on the table at snack time today…

  • Extra long toothpicks (I got mine in the kitchen accessories section at Walmart)
  • Green grapes
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Cream cheese (or frosting)

Thread the grapes onto each toothpick until there’s no toothpick sticking out.

Apply a dab of cream cheese as “glue”.

And most of all, about the actually enjoying meals as a family. These are our hits and misses (you know, you've tried to make dinner before) and there's nothing I'd rather share with you. Except this: if I can do it, you can too. Let's feed some kids.

  1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave on medium power in 15-second intervals until melted. Stir between each interval to prevent the chocolate from getting too hot.
  2. Place the melted chocolate in a ziplock bag and cut a tiny piece off the corner. You will be using this to make the eyes, spots, wings, and insect legs, so make sure you only snip off a tiny corner.
  3. Cut the fruit and create desired bugs, using the instructions below.


Place grapes or blueberries on the skewers in groups of five. Use the chocolate to make eyes.


Cut a strawberry in half for the body and use a grape as the head. Use the chocolate to place eyes on the head and spots on the body. To place the legs, place wax paper on a small plate and squeeze some chocolate onto the strawberry, continuing off the berry and slightly onto the wax paper. Be sure to make a nice, thick layer and don’t make them too long. Short is easier to manage!

Flying Insects

Use melons cut in a rectangular shape for the body. For the head, use a grape, blueberry, or melon cut in a small circle. To insert the flower/mint wings, use the blunt end of the skewer to pierce a hole in the side of the melon. Place the flower or mint in the hole, and use the sharp side to secure it into place.

Apple Crawlers

Slice an apple and cut a small v shape out of the bottom center of the fruit. Use grape or blueberry for a head, and accent the body with chocolate.

Fruit Caterpillar Happy Friday guys! I have another kid friendly recipe today but I promise, for those that don&rsquot have kids or aren&rsquot looking for kid friendly recipes, I will be back next week with my go-to Slow Cooker Chili recipe. Stay tuned! Today&rsquos post I am especially excited about because I love reading the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar to Will and Andrew. Today&rsquos kid friendly recipe is simple to put together and a fun snack for the kids after school or in their lunch box. If your kids love the book then they will definitely love this snack idea. I had this caterpillar waiting for Will after school and he was thrilled. On Aug. 31, Produce for Kids and Meijer hosted the third annual Healthy Families, Helping Kids campaign to educate families on the benefits of healthy eating and raise money for nutrition education through Jump with Jill, a music-based health program for kids. Since 2002, Meijer has raised more than $1 million for local children&rsquos organizations. Shoppers will be enouraged to add more produce to their grocery carts from the 11 supplies through September 27th and this will help increase donations. This is a great way to get your kids excited about fruits and vegetables in a creative and familiar way and help out a great cause! Cultural and Mechanical Methods

Healthy, properly maintained plants are the best deterrent to many pests. While not completely immune to insects, a healthy grapevine can tolerate some pest damage with little damage to fruit quality or overall plant health. This approach starts with choosing the right grape variety for your growing region and properly caring for the vines with adequate watering and proper pruning. It includes not over-fertilizing, since too much fertilizer can attract certain pests. Many pests overwinter in leaf debris, so it’s important to keep the garden clean. Mechanical control methods include handpicking larger pests, such as Japanese beetles and caterpillars, and removing any grapes or clusters that are injured by Asian lady beetles.

Grape caterpillars for kids recipe - Recipes

Kids love hanging around in the kitchen “helping”, and they also love crafting. So pairing the two together to keep little ones busy, and reaping the rewards of their crafting work is a match made in heaven. It’s nice when children can begin to learn the basics around cooking and baking, and some of these recipe activities do just that! Each of these ideas will stretch their creative minds, and allow them to eat it or serve it when they’re done. It’s truly a win-win! Especially in those busy summer months! Occupy and entertain kids with any one of these recipes and it’s sure to be a hit.®

Usually ants, beetles, and other creepy crawlies are not welcome in the kitchen. But that’s not the case with these fun snacks. Grab the kids and eat some bugs! Note: Where peanut butter is used in these recipes for “gluing” edible body parts together, frostings may be used as a substitution for those children who are sensitive to or allergic to nuts.

Ants in the Sand

graham crackers, crushed chocolate sprinkles snack sized resealable plastic bags To crush graham crackers, place inside a large (gallon size) resealable plastic bag. Using a rolling pin, smash crackers through bag by rolling back and forth over them until they are all in crumb form. Fill snack sized resealable bags halfway with graham cracker crumbs. Add a small handful of chocolate sprinkles to the bags and seal.

Bugs on a Log

celery stalks peanut butter raisins Spread peanut butter onto washed and drained celery stalks. Top with raisins. For children who are allergic to peanuts, try using cream cheese or processed cheese spread in place of the peanut butter. // Cookie Spiders black or chocolate licorice twists fudge sandwich cookies chocolate frosting red cinnamon candies Cut licorice in half. Remove the top of each sandwich cookie press 8 licorice pieces into the fudge center to resemble spider legs. Spread a little chocolate frosting over the licorice replace cookie tops. Frost the tops of the spider cookies with frosting. Place red cinnamon candies on top for eyes.

Muenster Beetles

crunchy chow mein noodles muenster cheese (or other soft block cheese) Cut cheese into 2″ x 1″ rectangular blocks. Gently insert three chow mein noodles on each side of cheese block for legs. Using two broken chow mein noodles, insert into “head” as antennae. Note: Cheddar makes a bright and colorful beetle, but can be very frustrating for little fingers as the cheese is a bit too hard to press the noodles into without breaking. Use softer cheese such as gouda, havarti, monterey jack, or even mozerella.

Peanut Butter Caterpillars

bananas peanut butter grapes chow mein noodles Peel and slice a banana. Join the slices together by “gluing” them with peanut butter. Carefully poke two chow mein noodles (or break a pretzel stick in half to make two pieces) through the top of the grape. Use more peanut butter to attach the head (grape) to the front of the body, with antennae (chow mein noodles) pointing up.
