School's out, so to feed your kids' hunger for knowledge and keep math and reading skills from getting too rusty, try these fun ideas for snack time. They're included on our 10 Ways to Make Summer More Fun. Be sure to check out the others!
Edible Hangman: Make this classic game delicious by having kids write their letter guesses on crackers using squirtable cheese or a similar condiment. Veggies make up the hangman -- a celery body, cherry tomato head, carrot arms, and bell-pepper legs. After each round, players eat their words -- and their veggies.
Make-a-Shape: Turn mini marshmallows or raisins into building materials. Using toothpicks as connectors, kids can create shapes such as hexagons and pyramids before they gobble their snack.
