Who says your kids can’t play with their food? Give them some sliced veggies and encourage them to make fun designs. Peanut butter or another dip can be used to help things stick together. Toothpicks can also be used if they want their art to stand up.
Not all veggies have to be sliced for this, of course. Cherry tomatoes are generally best left whole, as are snap peas.
Think about different ways to slice up the veggies. They don’t all need to be sticks. Offer carrot sticks as well as slices, for example.
