  • What to make for 2nd grade class?

    My son asked me to make something for last day of summer school party. I used to make brownies or rice crispy treats. Obviously, not going to make said things now. Suggestions+recipes pls! Something easy enough that isn't going to cost an arm and a leg to make.

    TIA!

    Bring a big fruit plate. If you want to make it more treat like whip some heavy whipping cream with a smidge of sugar. I'd avoid nuts for any kid thing.

      My favorite go to desert is choc covered strawberries. If it's super hot and the party is outside though, they might melt.

        Watermelon balls. Kids like fun shapes, and watermelon is juicy and refreshing.

        Any sort of fruit is good. Fruit kebabs maybe? Lots of colors and shapes there- grapes, melon cubes, strawberries, pineapple cubes, blueberries, maybe put some pieces of cheese in there too.

          No offense, but if I were in 2nd grade and I Was brought a fruit tray, I'd be beyond disappointed. Go for cheesecake cupcakes topped with strawberries, cherries or fudge sauce. That can easily be made primal-ish. I eat cheesecake and ice cream all the time.

            Just put them in muffin trays with paper cupcake baking cups. You may have to cut baking time. Instead of 40-45 mins, it's probably more like 25-30 mins per tray. You may want to look up a cheesecake cupcake recipe and follow their baking times. Then, just top with cherries and/or fudge. Simple

              To be fair, in second grade if you brought a fruit plate, I would TOTALLY be hogging it. And only with watermelon balls you can use cookie cutters to cut Fruits like kiwi, cantaloupe, honeydew, etc into shapes.

              But then again I was that weird kid who really loved steamed broccoli and never ate her mashed potatoes. So maybe I'm just wrong on this topic.

                Watermelon... its an awesome treat this time of year.... & you won't get flack from other parents for bringing something "un-healthy" and there's not a lot of ppl who are allergic to watermelon...

                  Well, I bring fruit kebabs to school for treats all the time, and the kids go bonkers over them. I use the coffee stirrer/straws, and push them through strawberries, grapes, blueberries, watermelon, etc. At each class party there is one salty treat, one sweet treat, and fruit. Every class party I've been to, the fruit was gone first. Don't underestimate kids!!

                    I have a great (and easy) cake recipe that you could make cupcakes with (just make a bigger batch of batter and add more sugar). I've gotten really good feedback from adults and kids:

                        Our school district has a wellness policy (employees and parents are expected to follow) so there are certain things you CAN and CAN NOT bring for any occasion (holidays, birthdays etc.) Fruit is welcome, chocolate is acceptable but cookies and cupcakes are banned.

                            How about primal crackers? We sell a ton of them at the bakery. Crackers made with almond flour - so addictive. My kid loves our cheese crackers. Big kids like them too :-)
