Your kids will love these fun and cute Beach Bear snacks!
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!
