The days are getting warmer where we live and the kids are constantly talking about going out on the boat and going to the beach. It reached a balmy 70 degrees last week and my youngest actually asked when we could get our Banzai Waterslide out. “Ummm, not today,” I replied. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous but I’m sure our well water is still absolutely freezing.

Fast forward to the weekend and the kids wanted a fun snack while having some friends over. The weather was nice and my snack bin (aka candy box my husband steals my ‘work’ candy from), was full. Plus, we had graham crackers on hand. We always have graham crackers.

Your kids will love these beach bear grahams and they are so easy to make and only take a few minutes. Grab some graham crackers, Teddy Grahams, Airheads Extreme Rainbow candy (I found mine at 7-Eleven), white frosting and blue gel food coloring.

To get started, add a drop or 2 of the blue gel food coloring to 1 cup of white frosting. Gel food coloring goes a very long way, so use a little and add to it later if you want a darker, deeper color. After the frosting is colored, spread it generously over the top of each graham cracker. Set aside.

Take 1 stack of grahams and put them into a small sandwich bag and crush them. Use this as ‘sand’ on the your graham cracker and sprinkle it on the bottom of the cracker. Use a pair of kitchen scissor to snip the rainbow candy into shorter pieces a little bit longer than the Teddy Grahams to use as beach towels. Place the beach towels where you would like on the grahams.

Add a dab of frosting to the back of the Teddy Grahams using a toothpick and place on the beach towel so that they look like they are sunning themselves. Presto! Cute Beach Bears your kiddos will love!

Ingredients

  • Rainbow Airheads Xtreme Sweetly Sour Belts

Instructions

  • Take one stack of grahams, put them in a small sandwich bag and crush them using a rolling pin. Set aside.
  • Add a few drops of blue gel food coloring to the white frosting. Go easy as you do not need a lot of gel. If you'd prefer the blue be darker, simply add another drop and mix.
  • Generously spread each graham with blue frosting.
  • Sprinkle some of the crushed grahams on the bottom to resemble sand at the beach (as seen in photos)
  • Use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut the Rainbow Airheads candy into strips a little bit longer than the Teddy Grahams to resemble beach towels. Lay the candy down on the graham crackers.
  • Using a toothpick, take a little bit of blue frosting and place it on the back of the Teddy Grahams and lay them on the 'beach towel'.
