Welcome to this week’s Mini Chef Mondays. Today it is all about leap year foods to make with your kids. Since this day only happens once every four years, why not make the most of it and make some fun foods to leap you into March? To hop into March we are focusing on ten leap year foods which all happen to be frog themed. Get it, leap year and frogs? I’ve scoured the internet for some of the most adorable frog-themed foods. All of the leap year foods featured can easily be made with your children as a way to get them into the kitchen. Consider having your mini chefs help you chop apple slices, mix brownie batter or assemble the sandwich cookies into the frog shapes before adding the frosting. There’s so many ways to have your little one help in the kitchen and have some fun with this special day while you are at it.
10 Leap Year Foods to Make with Your Kids
- These biscuit frogs from Cute Food for Kids are a fun way to add a little leap year celebration to your dinner table.
2. I love this Apple Frogs from Clean and Scentsible. Your little chef could help by washing the apples or slicing (for those a little more experienced). 3. A frog made of pickles? Yep! This fun snack is so easy to prepare, even a kid could do it. 4. Your mini chef could certainly make this little dessert by themselves. It’s simply a swiss roll with melted chocolates and chocolate gummies for these adorable frogs on a log. 5. I absolutely love this fun pea dish made to look like a frog. All you need are peas, cucumber slices, and a tomato for the smile and you have a perfect froggy side dish for your little foodie. 6. Jello is another good food to get your kids in the kitchen. It’s simple to prepare and the finished result if kid-friendly and tasty. We love these cute Jello Frog Ponds. 7. This has to be one of my favorites from this round-up. Buona Pappa created these adorable gluten-free buckwheat crepes on her blog and they look so kid-friendly. 8. It’s a cookie and it’s a frog – it’s a cookie frog! It doesn’t get any easier than this. 9. This is another cookie frog that it just too cute for words. Fun Family Crafts shares this very adorable leap year cookie. 10. My final favorite leap year food is from fellow Mini Chef Mondays participant, Baby Loving Mama and her adorable Frog Pond Cookie Cups. My kids love brownies so this is a really cute way to make a simple treat stand out.
