Columbus Day Snacks & Recipes


Columbus Day Boats

18 small marshmallows, 9 maraschino cherries, can of sliced peaches, vanilla ice cream, butterscotch syrup, ice cream scoop, 12 toothpicks, 3 dessert plates, (banana split bowls), spoon, can opener,

On each dessert plate, place 3 scoops of ice cream. Arrange peach slices around the ice cream. Spoon the syrup over the ice cream and peaches. On each of 9 toothpicks, sit one marshmallow, a cherry, and another marshmallow in that order. Stick a toothpick on top of each scoop of ice cream. On the middle marshmallow poke a flag of your own design--the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria.



The children make apple sailboats from an apple slice, a triangular piece of cheese, & a toothpick. Eat for snack.

Sailboat Eggs

Allow 1 egg per sailor

Ingredients: hard-boiled eggs, 1/2 teaspoon mustard, carrot sticks, chopped pimentos, 1 teaspoon mayonnaise, 1 cup diced green peppers, celery sticks, lettuce leaves

Utensils: knife and cutting board, bowl, fork, toothpicks for mast, scissors, paper for sails, tape

Process- Peel the hard-boiled eggs. Discard shells or save for another art idea, such as eggshell mosaics. Cut the eggs in half. Remove the yolks and place them in a bowl. Mash the yolks with 1 teaspoon mayonnaise and 1/2 teaspoon mustard. Mound the mixture back into the egg white sections. Decorate the egg sections with the celery sticks, carrot sticks and chopped pimentos. Cut the paper into sails, attach to the toothpicks with tape and put into eggs. Place the lettuce on a serving plate, then put the eggs on top of the lettuce.
