Tomorrow is our last turn at kindergarten snack. I offered to make Miss Priss any snack she desired. What did she pick? Plain turkey sandwiches on white squishy bread (with the crusts cut off). With a big sigh and a heavy heart, I complied. So, here they are. The most basic snack I do, but it is probably the one that Miss Priss likes the best.
That does not mean that you, readers, have to serve plain turkey sandwiches for kid snacks. You can click Party Sandwiches for one of the easiest recipes you will ever follow, but I am also posting links back to old posts with the other super snacks from this year. Are you signed up to bring an item for an end of the year party? Any of the choices below will work!
Miss Priss is slowly embracing TheRoomMom version of snack after she realized she wasn’t as hungry in the afternoon on our snack days. She requested turkey wraps for her class this rotation. Not only is it easy to make a basic wrap, but it can be a good school lunch option, and you can fill it with all kinds of meat, cheese, or veggies depending on the tastes of your child. I made extras tonight to take with me to school tomorrow to share with my co-teacher.
large flour tortillas (I needed 2 packs of 10 tortillas)
1 1/2 to 2 lbs. thinly sliced turkey
cream cheese, softened
shredded lettuce (optional)
grated carrots (optional)
Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on one side of a tortilla. Cover the entire surface.
Cover the cream cheese with a layer of turkey. I use 2-3 slices.
Near one edge of the tortilla, sprinkle a line of lettuce and grated carrot.
From the end with the lettuce and carrot, roll the tortilla.
Slice into 5 pieces. (I discard the ends– and by discard, I mean TheRoomDad eats them.)
Can be made the night before and refrigerated since they don’t get soggy!
I like to spread the tortilla with Boursin or Alouette cheese and add additional thinly sliced veggies like red pepper.
Hummus makes a good spread too instead of the cream cheese.
I am also sending in bags of pretzels because I think this snack may be too “weird” for some kindergarteners. We did make half of the wraps with cream cheese and turkey only, so I am hoping all of the kids might give it a try. What are other good wrap combinations for children or adults?
