Bug Themed Party Food: pizza butterflies, dirt pudding, strawberry ladybugs, and grape caterpillars create the most fun insect inspired dinner.
It’s Friday night, and Maddie, my youngest daughter who’s 5, and I were inspired by “Scientist in the School” bug day to create a bug themed dinner! This bug themed party food would be perfect for any insect related celebrations.
We learned all about insect body parts, how they eat, and camouflage today at school through this great program, so at the grocery store we got to thinking it would be fun to make some bug food for dinner, and keep the fun going. Here’s what we came up with.
We made butterfly pizza, with a home made little pizza cut in half for wings, a piece of celery, carrot eyes, and green bean antenna.
For dessert, we started out with dirt pudding. We used a chocolate pudding cup, mixed in some whip cream and some crushed Oreos. It was so yummy, I just might be “going to the garden to eat dirt” in the future!
Strawberry and Cherry LadyBugs
We also made some lady bugs. Their bodies -or thorax and abdomen (I was listening!) were strawberries, with chocolate chip spots. Their heads were cherries with candy eyes, and chocolate sprinkle antenna.
Grape and Marshmallow Caterpillars
We also made some caterpillars out of grapes and mini marshmallows on a tooth pick, with the same candy eyes and sprinkle antenna.
It was so much fun, and the kids really enjoyed it. Life is what we make it, so we may as well make it a party…especially on a Friday night. 😉 Hope you have a great weekend.
With bug themed party food for dinner, life really is party!
