A cute healthy Easter snack for kids

I’ve had a dozen different ideas for creative cute kid snacks for Easter and spring, but all of them revolved around chicks and bunnies and spring flowers, with nothing reflecting why Easter is my absolute favorite day of the year, that Jesus is ALIVE! I did a Google search for religious Easter snacks and found a few ideas but no healthy Easter snacks. However after seeing a few variations on these empty tomb treats, I decided to try making a simple and healthy version from pineapple, and it turned out great!

Slip the knife into the pineapple and begin slicing away the peel, rotating as you go. Make sure you have a really sharp knife, dull knives are dangerous knives!

Eventually you should cut all the way around, removing the peel in one large sheet.

Use the empty baby food jar like a cookie cutter to make the opening and stone for the tomb. Don’t cut it right in the center, but a little toward the bottom of your circle.

I really love snacks that teach (like the B is for Butterfly snack). I found that this empty tomb snack was a fun way to teach Corban about what Easter means to me.

Our church has three crosses in the parking lot, which he points at and says “Jesus die”. So I explained that Jesus died on a cross, and they put his body in a cave (he understands caves as he saw a raccoon come out of one and now looks for raccoons in every dark hole he sees), but on the third day his body was gone and the cave was empty because Jesus is alive.

He now thinks Jesus hangs out with raccoons, but hey, it’s possible right? Either way, Corban loved the story time and devoured the pineapple.
