For my first attempt, I made Octopus Sausages and Fruit Kabobs with yogurt for dipping. These were super fun to make AND to eat! My picky eater, Shem, even gobbled up his lunch without any fuss!
The fruit kebobs were simple. I just cut up some fresh fruit and threaded it on to an extra long sucker stick. You can use a popsicle stick or skewer for this too if you like. Just make sure there are no sharp ends for the littles to get hurt with. Then, I put some yogurt in a cup for the kids to dip their fruit in. Easy peasy! The Octopus Sausages involved a little more work, but they were fun to make and eat, so I would definitely make these again! I used a package of turkey franks (hot dogs). You could also use cocktail franks for this. You can see the whole recipe here -> Octopus Sausages Recipe
I added in a few cut up cheese blocks and TA-DA! Lunch is served!! While we had lunch, we read the story An Octopus Is Amazing (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science, Stage 2). It’s a great way to tie in lunch to some learning!!
