They said you shouldn’t play with your food, but who could resist making these cute little breakfast characters?
With just a few ingredients and no special equipment, it’s a great way to introduce additional fruit and nuts into the morning routine, while allowing kids to develop their creativity and fine motor skills.
Weetabix have created the Weetabuddies – a range of characters to make breakfast a little more fun – and all the ones you see here are characters my children (JD, 8 and Miss J, 4), my husband and I created for ourselves!
Here’s a quick look at how we made them, which should be more than enough to inspire your own creations.
As you can see, we used raisins, red grapes, green grapes, cashews, red appe, orange segments, strawberries, kiwis and bananas, slicing them in different ways to create a range of shapes and colours to choose from.
We all had fantastic fun. It’s a great way for families to get creative at breakfast whilst having a healthy start to the day.
