Carrots & Hummus – a FUN After School Snack #BacktoSchoolWeek


I’m going to be completely honest here…

I’ve had this idea pinned for ages, but I never actually thought it would get my kids to eat hummus (they’ve usually been pretty good about carrots.)

But when I received some great snack bags of carrots from Cal-Organic Farms, I knew it was time to give this a whirl.

And you know what?

My kids LOVED it!  They were both so excited about their little flower pots that they ate their snack bags of carrots and more!

Don’t miss all of the great #BacktoSchoolWeek giveaways!!!

And don't forget to join us for our PinChat on August 25th for a chance to win more great prizes!

Here's how it works:
  1. Go to the #BacktoSchoolWeek pin board on Pinterest here. It will be full of fun Pin graphics with questions about back to school. You can re-pin the questions, answer questions in the comment section of the pins and pin crafts/recipes to the board as answers to questions {only the comments on the question pins count as entries to the PinChatLive giveaway} How fun is that?!? {**Only ONE comment per question pin per person, please. Pinterest views multiple comments from the same person on the same pin to be spam}
  2. Go to the YouTube video that will be happening during the PinChatLive from 6-7 pm EST Sunday Aug 25th. We’ll be chatting about back to school and doing a play-by-play of the pinning. You'll be able to see and hear the hosts of #BacktoSchoolWeek and some of the participating bloggers! Comments on the video count as PinChatLive giveaway entries!
  3. You'll be able to watch/listen to the YouTube video while you see the PinChat unfold on Pinterest. Cool, right? 
Hope you can join us, it's going to be a Pin-tastic time!Cool, right? 

Carrots & Hummus – a FUN After School Snack

Mini Flower Pots
Cal-Organic Baby Carrots
Parsley


Unless you are certain that your pots are food safe, line them with foil or press and seal. (I’ll be honest, my pots once had plants in them!  So I lined with press and seal!)

Fill a decorating bag fitted with a large piping tip (or a zipper bag with a corner cut off) with hummus and pipe it into the lined pots.

“Plant” 3 baby carrots in each pot.  Lightly dip a piece of parsley in the hummus and stick to a carrot.

Serve to children after school along with additional carrots.

  2. What a great idea for a snack. I love hummus and carrots, but my grand daughter love to eat them with sour cream. You could always make some with sour cream.
    Have a wonderful week,
