Dump Truck Snack

Last week I made The Littlest Apple some extra-special after-school snacks for his first week of preschool.  The Littlest Apple LOVES construction trucks, so when I saw this dump truck snack on Little Nummies, I knew it would make his day.

Here’s my version….

It’s certainly not as good as the one at Little Nummies (my bread was a strange size, my cheese ripped), but The Littlest Apple thought it was the neatest snack ever!

To make the Dump Track Snack, I used:

  • 1 sliced of bread
  • 1 slice of cheese
  • a square of fruit rollup
  • 1/2 of a grape
  • 2 cookies
  • dried blueberries (or fruit snacks, or chocolate chips…something small to fill up the dump truck!)

Full disclosure: Although The Littlest Apple thought this looked really neat, he only ate the cookie wheels and the dried blueberries.  But you know how picky my kid is!

After seeing the dump truck snack, The Littlest Apple said, “Can you make a cement mixer?!”

Well, The Littlest Apple and all other truck lovers are in luck!  Check out these other great truck snacks (and tons of other great snack ideas) at Little Nummies:
