Bees on the flower

By Gosia

Preparation time:   |   Servings: 1   Bees on the flower snack for kids

Bzzzzz ... Two little tomato bees on the flower, how yummy :) The idea of this simple snack came after we saw the exhibition explaining the life of bees and honey making process at the Agriculture Museum.

 

Ingredients

  • For the flower:
  • 2 red cherry tomatoes
  • 1 round cracker
  • 2 slices of cucumber
  • For the bees
  • 2 black olives
  • 4 almond slices
  • 4 orange cherry tomatoes (2 small and 2 big)
  • 1 toothpick

Did you know what is the bee antennae used for? It is like our nose - helps the bee to detect odors and sometimes even the direction of the odor. It also helps to measure its flight speed.

Preparation

Cut the red cherry tomatoes into slices. Place them on a plate around the cracker. Cut one cucumber slice into two and use it as the flower's leaves. Cut small rectangle pieces from the other slice of cucumber and use them as the f lower stem.

Make the bee's head: cut two eyes from the black olive using a straw. Place the straw on the olive and press gently; remove it and blow into it if needed to remove the small olive part. Use a knife to cut a small piece of olive to be used as a mouth. Use the knife to make two small holes in the smaller orange cherry tomato and place the olive 'eyes' there. Make a small groove for the mouth and insert the olive slice.
