When I was little, my mom came up with this great idea that got us to clear our plates. She let us make our own “kabobs”. I often list this at one of my lunches and thought I’d share with you what exactly a “Kiddie Kabob” is, so you could partake as well!
These are so easy to make, because you get out all the ingredients and the kids do the rest. Basically, get some kabobs sticks. Then raid your cabinets for soft foods that will slide on easily. This is a great time to use up some of your left-overs. Boil harder foods like carrots for just a little bit so they’ll slide on as well. Dice up any larger foods into bite size piece. Put everything into bowls and set it out for the kids to add their own ingredients to their kabob sticks!
You can use any ingredients you’d like but here are a few examples:
- Green Beans
- Hot Dogs
- Diced Chicken or Chicken Nuggets
- Cheese Cubes
- Torn Bread or Rolls
My mom always had us end our kabob with a marshmallow, for “dessert”. My children always inhale their kabobs, since they get to design them entirely by themselves. It makes a great, easy fight-free meal!
