I Fed My Son Bugs and He Loved It!

This isn’t a Robinson Crusoe, camping/eat-bugs-for-survival scenario but when you tell your child that you are going to invite their friends over and serve insects the silliness erupts.

Caterpillars on a stick.

Caterpillars on a stick look fantastic on a classic tablecloth.

It can’t be any simpler, or tastier, with healthy versions such as grapes on skewers with eyes made from dollops of cream cheese and raisin eyes or a caterpillar created from alternating white and wheat bread cut into circles with the top of a can.

Have some fun with gummy worms and butterflies by adding them to fruit or freezing in ice cubes for “bug juice.” Continue the simple, classic style by serving drinks in bale jars with striped straws.

Make a slight hole into an apple and stick in a gummy worm.

Peanut butter crackers become spiders by inserting pretzel sticks within and making eyes out of raisins. Also add to the gummy worm fun by placing on donuts pricked with holes.
