A Rainy Day Snack

We've done a few umbrella crafts today and it got me thinking that we should enjoy a rainy day snack, too. It's not perfect and I thought it looked more like a toadstool than an umbrella. Then, Mia asked me "How are we going to make the rain drops?" I suggested grapes and it suddenly looked more like an umbrella. We make a good team!

  • slice of round cheese
  • string cheese
  • grapes (or other round/oval fruit)
  1. Break (or cut if you want to be more precise) a round slice of cheese in half. Lay one half on a plate.
  2. Take some string cheese and peel off a section. Arrange it underneath the half cheese slice to look like the umbrella's handle. (It probably won't stay curved, but that's okay.)
  3. Arrange a few grapes above the umbrella to look like rain drops. (Other fruit such as blueberries or raisins would also work.)
  4. Enjoy your snack on a rainy day (or whenever).
