Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

I Wish I Was At The Beach: A Beach Themed Fruit Snack

(Thanks to my wonderful
sister-in-law who took a
picture at the beach because
I forgot to!)
It seems like a really long time ago that we went on vacation. It wasn't even that long ago; we went in April! We went to the beach for 1 day and the kids had a blast. They built a sand castle, found shells, and played in the water. They even got to see a pirate ship off in the distance. It was a great day, so of course the boys want to go back. However, since it would take about 2 days of driving (with potty stops every 2 hours and spending the night somewhere), I made them a beach themed snack instead!

For this snack, you will need:
  • Clementines
  • Banana (1 per palm tree)
  • Kiwi

1. Lay the banana on a plate and slice. This will become the trunk of the palm
    tree, so you want to keep the pieces together.
2. Peel and slice the kiwi. Place around the top of the banana to create the
    palm tree leaves.
3. Peel and separate the slices of the clementines. Place at the bottom of the 
    banana to create the sand. You could also use toasted coconut or even 
    coconut marshmallows for the sand.
