10 spring snacks to make with the kids

One of my favorite memories from childhood is baking molasses cookies with my mom. I loved the process of mixing the dough (perfect time to sneak in my fair share of bites) and peeking inside the oven every 3 minutes. Now that I’ve grown up, I find myself feeling grateful for the memories I got to share with my mom in the kitchen (I still make those same cookies 20 years later!). I compiled a list of 10 super cute spring recipes that are easy to make with the kiddos and will allow them to create memories of their own. Plus, these fun recipes will boost their creativity and work on their fine motor skills. 

1. Pretzel flower bites

Who needs a spring garden when you can have flower pretzel bites? Your little one will work on their fine motor skills as they press the candy onto the pretzel. Bonus!
