Serves 1 hungry child, or make as crudité to dip into hummus, roasted beet dip, etc
1 Bell pepper, cut cross-wise into thin slices (they make great butterfly wings — consider filling them with hummus.)
1 English cucumber, sliced (for the body)
1 Pint cherry tomatoes, halved
2 Black sesame seeds (for the eyes)
Pea shoot spouts, radish or other sprouts, for making great antenna
Also consider: long slices of carrot, hicama, snap peas, and your child’s favorite veggies
Grab your cutie and make all kinds of creatures. Girls are partial to butterflies and flowers (speaking from experience), although trucks and cars are fun to make, too!
