Annie's Chamorro Kitchen: Robot Snack Packs
My niece, Chrystina, is always looking for creative ways to make snack time fun for her children. This time, she and her son, Damian, made Robot Snack Packs for Damian to share with his kindergarten class.
- Applesauce cups for the robot head
- Juice boxes for the robot body
- Snack-sized boxes of raisins for robot feet
- Smarties or Sweet Tarts for robot arms
- Googly eye stickers
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks (see note)
NOTE: Parents or adults must supervise and help with this project so that little ones do not get burned with the hot glue gun or glue. You can use heavy-duty double-sided tape for this project if you’d rather not use hot glue.
To to assemble the robots:
Make the robot head:
Flip up the two side flaps or “wings” of the juice box so that they are laying on top of the box. Add a small line of glue to each flap. Turn the applesauce upside down and stick the top to the juice box flaps.
Make the robot feet:
Glue the boxes of raisins to the bottom of the juice box “robot body” to make feet.
Make the robot arms:
Glue one end of the Smarties to the sides of the juice box to make robot arms.
Lastly, stick the eyes on the side of the applesauce “robot head.”
Damian had fun making these. I’m sure you’ll have fun with your little ones too! Enjoy!
