K Is for Kooky Kite

Snacks that start with K - Kooky Kite lunch

Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height!
Let’s go fly a kite, and send it soaring!

When the breezy days of spring or autumn arrive and the sun is shining, it’s the perfect time to fly a kite.

But what if it’s raining outside or the wind isn’t blowing?

No problem…you can fly this kooky kite right in your very own kitchen.

In fact, this ABC Snacks recipe is more than a snack—it’s lunch!

We’ve taken pretty standard lunchtime ingredients, including a sandwich, fruit, and veggies, and put them together in a way that your preschooler is going to adore. It certainly looks like Corbin and Emma are happy with their kites!
