School is hard work. Brains are running on high gear and appetites always seem to go up when kids have been in school all day. That’s why I like to have healthy after-school snacks ready and waiting for my kids!

My kids know what they can and cannot grab as a snack, but some days I like to make it extra special and give them something a little more fun! This simple and easy after school snack idea will have your kids eating better and is sure to put a smile on their face after a long day at school.

After School Snack Kabobs

After School Snack

To make these easy after school snack kabobs you just need a few ingredients. I used deli ham, zucchini, grapes, strawberries, and I made sure to grab everyone’s favorite snack — Crystal Farms® Cheese!

Cheese from Crystal Farms is always a great addition to any snack or meal because it is a rich source of calcium, plus it is made by cheese lovers, for cheese lovers — like me!

You can get really creative and slice and dice everything into fun little shapes, or keep it simple and just cut into bite-sized pieces.

I also had a ton of fun using my Cricut cutting machine to cut out little skewer toppers with fun sayings to go on top of each kabob. The kids are going to love having a special message with their snack!

To make the toppers you can use this ready-made design from the Cricut Design Space software, or you can make your own in a program like Word or Paint.

Simply cut out the shapes and then glue together. Be sure to insert the skewer stick between layers before completely gluing together so that the end of the stick is in the middle and you can’t see it.

Next, assemble your skewers in any fashion you like! I did some with no meat, some with extra fruit, and since everyone loves the Crystal Farms Colby Cheese, I made sure to include it on each one.

These can easily be made right before the kids get home, or you can make them in advance as well. They store great in glass containers, which can also be used for leftovers — as if there’ll be any!

What would you include in your after-school snack kabobs?
