This little froggy turned out so cute! I love when an idea actually pans out. I made this little froggy using a whole green granny smith apple and a couple other ingredients I had in the house. It was a great afternoon snack for the kids on a sunny summer afternoon and it was pretty simple to make. The kids really loved it and I have a feeling they’ll be requesting this cute snack again and again. This is how I made it…

What you’ll need:

1 granny smith apple
2 cucumber slices
2 dried currants
1 green grape
black food safe marker or black food colouring
2 pink circle-shaped sprinkles
2 black sesame seeds
sharp kitchen knife


1. Cut a large slice off your green apple, stopping right before the core. Place this piece, green side up, on your plate for the frog’s head.

2. Make another slice off the apple on the other side of the core. Carefully cut the sides off the core piece and discard the core. Slice these pieces into 2 thin and small slices for the frog’s arms. Place these arms on the frog’s body.

3. Cut the remaining apple piece into 2 pieces. One piece will be the frog’s body. Place this on the plate underneath the head.

4. Take the last piece of green apple and cut it into 2 oval shapes. Place these, green side up, beside the frog’s body for the frog’s legs.

5. Grab your 2 cucumber slices and place them on the frog’s head for the eyes. If you’re having trouble getting the eyes to stay you can use toothpicks to hold them in place.

6. Place your black currants on each cucumber slice for the eyes.

7. Slice your green grape into four thin slices. Place these slices on your frog for the hands and feet.

8. Place two pink circle-shaped sprinkles on each cheek of the frog.

9. Place two black sesame seeds on the frog’s face for the nose.

10. Finally, take your black food-safe marker, or some black food colouring and a toothpick and draw on a smile!

This little froggy sure is fun! Give it a try, I bet your kids will love it!
