  • Send your kids off with a fun breakfast on a stick the first morning of school. Living Locurto made these absolutely adorable apple book worm pancake pops to celebrate the first day back.

    

  • You would never guess that these “crayons” were made out of pretzels! Gourmet Mom on the Go has her kids take part in making these edible crayons by dipping the pretzel ends in candy coating and wrapping the center with fun printables.

    

  • These edible books are not as hard to make as you think they might be. Hungry Happenings used molding chocolate for the inside and fruit leather as the outside book cover. What a clever lunch box treat!
    

  • Send the kids off to their first day of school with these peanut butter and jelly cookies. The folks over at My Own Labels attached a cute good luck tag from mom and wrote A+ on the cookies in peanut butter.

    

  • With a few chocolate bars, some sprinkles and your favorite cookie dough recipe, you can recreate our edible chalkboard cookies! We chose to use a peanut butter cookie dough, which really hit the spot!

    

  • Pack a lunch kids will actually want to eat. These sandwich kabobs are really healthy, and super easy to make. Just make sure you cut the sharp edges off the skewers before you send the kids off to school!

    

  • These yummy apple spiced cupcakes with a brown, butter cream cheese frosting will definitely kick kids back into gear. Hoosier Homemade made this a fun project for kids to help with!

    

  • A super simple snack, dip Oreos in red candy coating and use candies to create the face of your apple like Family Fun did here.
